Okay during the day Saturday…breeezy to windy so even though we jump well into the 30’s…it will feel colder to be out and about. The next storm…which is this weird mix of arctic air coming in from the north and a clipper like system that will morph into more of a southern like storm system…this is the type of blend that we need in the STL area to get the impressive snows, wind and cold…a pure winter pattern. The rough time 10pm Saturday night until noon on Sunday…but the impact of this storm will be in play Sunday afternoon with strong winds and blowing and drifting snow and bitter cold temperatures. Sunday night–windy and intense cold…Monday is super tough to be outside..the high near zero…the high…then minus 8 for the low Monday night into Tuesday morning. It stays cold with lighter winds on Tuesday. Wednesday here comes the next system…warmer temps but still well below average…upper 20’s…so the next system will be bringing in more snow…certainly a watcher…but storm at a time…stay warm and be safe
