7 Day Forecast
Every season, every hour, every day, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 covers all types of weather with more meteorologists than any other station. In addition, our meteorologists have more experience than the competition with over 100 years in the field.
Power Doppler, located in Weldon Spring, Missouri scans the sky for precipitation. It can even tell what type of precipitation is falling, how strong the winds are, and where the winds are rotating. It also tracks rain, freezing rain, sleet, snow pellets, and snow.
From winter storms with snow, sleet, and freezing rain to severe thunderstorms with lightning, thunder, wind, and tornadoes we have the best weather equipment. There are two weather centers to track, forecast, and help you understand how weather works.
Not only do we study weather in the studio, but we also chase severe weather in the field with the Woods Basement System Stormrunner. It has a built-in weather station, three cameras, editing and recording equipment, road temperature sensing equipment, and live broadcast capabilities. It is a mobile weather broadcast weather center. Tornadoes, flash flooding, severe thunderstorms, and winter weather driving conditions are the favorite chase items.
With fast-changing air masses, computer software samples temperatures from hundreds of weather stations around the viewing area and the country to show temperature trends so that you can prepare for flash freezes, heat waves, cold fronts, and warm fronts to help dress for the changing air masses. With a network of over 35 cameras throughout the viewing area, we can even show when and where air masses are changing and precipitation types are changing.
For astronomers, we track the moon phase and provide star charts for significant celestial events. And to help you breathe easier, we monitor allergens through the St. Louis County Health Department. Ozone, particulate, and sulfur dioxide levels are sampled through the Lung Association and Missouri Department of Natural Resources, Air Quality Division, and the U.S. EPA.
