Dave Murray’s latest stl forecast and weather disco…For Wednesday…February 26, 2014

*** Tons of cold air…very cold air for this time of year…temperatures running 20 to 30 degrees below average…it is an active storm track…next system with snow Friday and Friday night and the next…snow and some ice…Sunday and Sunday night…winter drags on***

Wednesday:

Partly to mostly sunny, cold and dry
Winds: Northwest 5-10 m.p.h.
High: 25 degrees

Wednesday night:

Clear skies and very cold
Winds: West 5-10 m.p.h.
Low: 12 degrees.

Thursday:

Partly to mostly sunny, dry and cold
Winds: North 5-15 m.p.h.
High: 25 degrees.

Light snow on Friday and Friday night…thinking the 1 to 3 range…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 Wednesday and Thursday…resulting in a dry aptetrn 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…but because the air is dry the ratio’s look high so thinking we squeeze a 1 to 3 inch snowfll out of the system by late Friday night. 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. Again…winter is far from over.
