4:00pm Weather Update - Winds to Increase

Winds will likely increase over the next 4-6 hours in eastern Missouri and central Illinois as the pressure gradient increases.

Look at the above image and you can see the higher winds beginning to expand in coverage on the west/southwest side of the storm.

The low is impressive. The pressure is down to 984mb and is centered over Chicago.

Just before 4pm CT a 63mph wind gust was measured at Spirit Airport in Chesterfield, Missouri. That is the highest wind gust measured today in the metro area.
