THE WEATHER DISCO:
.
A two part weather system…the cold air rushing back in from the northwest and a low pressure flying our way from the Texas panhandle… a close call between snow and no snow…as the low pressure has plenty of moisture…fighting with the cold and very dry air mass coming inf rom the north. This mix means snow…mainly from metro STL and points south……the heavy snow will be over southeast MO and southern IL…lets think along and south of a Rolla, Farmington, Park Hills, Sparta, Mt. Vernon…4 to 6 inches…metro STL 1 maybe 2 inches…nothing going to the north. After that…its all about more cold…big March cold Wednesday night, Thursday, Thursday night and Friday morning…chill Friday afternoon…a little better over the weekend…a cold front coming gy Saturday night…looking mainly dry right now.
