Dave Murray’s latest stl forecast and weather disco…For thursday…February 27, 2014

*** Bone-dry cold air in place today, tonight and into Friday morning…chapped lips alert. Two winter weather makers on the way…First..Friday afternoon and evening and the second…stronger…Sunday and Sunday night…followed by even colder weather…winter drags on***

Thursday:

Partly to mostly sunny, cold and dry…windy at times
Winds: East 15-30 m.p.h.
High: 25 degrees.

Thursday night:

Partly cloudy and very cold
Winds: East5-10 m.p.h.
Low: 12 degrees.

Friday:

Partly sunny early…then clouds with light snow…mixed with some sleet and rain during the afternoon
Winds: East 5-15 m.p.h.
High: 32 degrees.

Light snow ends Friday evening…1 to 2 maybe 1 to 3 inches…mostly cloudy and cold Saturday…snow with some sleet and ice Sunday and Sunday night

THE WEATHER DISCO:

A monster ridge of high pressure in control Thursday…resulting in a dry pattern but a very cold weather pattern…temperatures well below average both day and night…but the overall storm track is very active with a bubble of low pressure flying by Friday and Friday night with a fast round of light snow…we should squeeze a 1 to 3 inch snowfall out of the system by Friday night….some rain and sleet may mix in at times. Then a little break Saturday…but still very cold..the next system has a little more of a southern track to it and a little more energy…and is certainly a watcher. This thing is still deep in the Pacific and a long way to go…coming over the rockies and into the plains…so forecasts and ideas and runs will be all over the place…if someone tells you a snow amount for the Sunday/Sunday night event…they are blowing smoke….but a system is on the table for that time frame…stay tune and stay up to date… Again…winter is far from over….ever colder to start next week.
