Weekend weather: Highs in the 60s, with showers possible

St. Louis Weather Conditions and Forecast September 29

Today: The high temperature for today will be 78 degrees with cloudy skies with steady rain throughout the afternoon. Dew point readings will rise well into the 60s and temperatures will likely peak in the 70s. Expect a nice mix of sun and clouds. The lack of rain, coupled with above-average warm, sunny weather has led to much of the region east of Interstate 77 to be classified as "abnormally dry" in the latest version of the Drought Monitor. Highs in the 60s to near 70. Then, scattered showers from the remnants of Nate slowly start riding up from the south beginning around 4 P.M. So, if you live in Franklin, Adams, York, and Lancaster Counties, you'll get some of these showers, first. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 46. A few 80-degree readings over interior southern ME are possible.

Monday: Periods of rain, some could be heavy at times. However, Nate will bring hurricane force winds and heavy rain to portions of the Gulf Coast through the second half of the weekend. He is forecast to become a hurricane as he moves into the south central Gulf of Mexico earlyl Saturday. As they say, timing is everything, and in this case, the weekend looks increasingly unsettled, and, especially Sunday and Monday, increasingly wet as a tropical system named Nate crosses the Southeast. Regardless, we'll have the potential for gusty breezes and a few inches of rain.

Expect some handsome weather today! Highs in the lower 70s.

Mostly clear, with a low around 38. We are tracking the remnants of Nate, along with a cold front. The air will remain unseasonably mild with highs in the 70s.

Gradually clearing skies along with a high near 73 degrees and westerly winds around 10 miles per hour are expected on Saturday.

Big changes are possible by Thursday.
