Joe’s Weather Blog: Snow Slowly Tapers

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

It’s sort of tough to measure, what with the sugary nature to the fresh powder and the winds of 25 MPH blowing it all over the place…but it seems for the most part we’ve had 2-3″ as an average through the region with some places getting more than that, especially up towards the north and NE of the metro. We’ve had a solid 3″ here at FOX4 and I had 2″ in the driveway when I left for work a couple of hours ago.

Most of the accumulating snow has now moved away from the Metro…additional accums should be under 1/2″ I think. The heavy snows will head towards the St Louis area and points east and northeast from there.

Aside from that and the dangerous wind chills expected overnight…everything that I blogged about yesterday is still out there. Let’s see how cold we get tonight…a function of cloud cover and what the winds do. To get obnoxiously cold you need clear skies and light winds…not sure we’ll have either at this point overnight tonight. Still see no reason to come off my forecasted low of -8°.  There may be colder pockets out there…depending on the cloud cover situation.

I’ll expand on the blog later this afternoon with additional thoughts and snow totals. Have a great day…
