ST. LOUIS– Heavy snow is moving through the St. Louis area and FOX2’s team of meteorologists are tracking its path. The snow is expected to be in the area until 5 PM and could slow down the drive home.
This wasn’t a day where MoDOT trucks were busy all day. The spring snow fell on the warm ground meaning area roadways were wet, not white. As the heavier snow fell, visibility was poor, hopefully signaling drivers to slow down.
FOX2’s Angela Hutti was in Chesterfield’s Faust where the historic village was a peaceful setting for the gently falling and mostly melting snow.
A slushy coating on the fence measured about a quarter-inch and brought more of a February, not April, feel.
Snow began to stick around midday. The white stuff coated the playground in Wapelhorst Park in St. Charles, were just one day before, families likely came to play in the near 70 degree temperatures.
The snow isn’t accumulating a lot but it is wet, causing some ponding and wet roads. Drivers should also watch out for slick spots.
Some areas in Washington County, Missouri have seen an inch of snow. There was snow accumulating in the grass.
