ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- Goodbye Spring warmth. Gray skies and a gusty northwest winds greeted St. Louisans as they woke up Monday. Those winds mean the anticipated weather change has come to the region. Temperatures will fall throughout the day, dropping to near 40° by the evening commute.
Drizzly conditions put windshield wipers to work for the morning commute, but they'll be needed again Monday afternoon as more rain showers move in for the afternoon and evening.
As the rain begins to move out after 8:00pm, the temperature will drop into the mid 30s. So some areas, mainly north and northeast of downtown St. Louis, could see some wet sloppy snowflakes. No accumulation is expected, but yes, I said snowflakes.
Temperatures Monday night into Tuesday will tumble into the upper 20s or lower 30s.
A Freeze Warning is in effect for the entire St. Louis region from 11:00pm Monday until 9:00am Tuesday. Be sure to bring any plants you have recently placed outside, back into the house overnight.
