ST. LOUIS – A very cold start to the first work week of March. Temperatures Monday morning are in the single digits with a wind chill of -10. That makes this the coldest March morning since March 3, 2014, when the mercury dipped to +4°. The record for March morning is -1 set in 1978.
Today, skies will be partly cloudy with temperatures struggling to reach the lower 20s by mid-afternoon. Mostly clear skies for tonight and temperatures once again will dip into the single digits to near 10.
Tuesday will bring a bit of a warm-up as we pop to near the 30s and then above freezing on Wednesday.
A weak weather system will spray some light snow into the region late Wednesday night, that will change to light rain showers pretty quickly early Thursday morning.
Wind chills of 15 to 20 degrees below zero will continue across northeast MO & west central IL until 9 AM. pic.twitter.com/0tJs6Jx9qo
