According to the National Weather Service in St. Louis, a warm front moving through the region is expected to push temperatures into the upper 50s on Wednesday and Thursday, with Friday’s temperatures expected to be even higher.

The warmer weather is also bringing a chance of thunderstorms for Friday night and Saturday.
