ST. LOUIS (KTVI) –Our region has seen a lot of cold temperatures, especially so far in January, but with a few exceptions, no real measurable snowfall. or whatever could be called ‘a heavy downpour’.
Looking at recent history, St. Louis is in many ways comparable to the first day it saw at least an inch of snowfall for the first time in a season last year, and a LONG way to an all-time record.
- In the winter of 17-18, it happened on December 23, 2017
- During the ’18-19 season, it was November 12, 2018
- During the ’19 -’20 season, it was November 11, 2019
- In the ’20-21 season, it’s a little later, not until January 27, 2021 when it drops nearly 3 inches.
The closest date to St. Louis had the first snowfall? April 5, 1971.
We spoke with FOX2 Meteorologist and Severe Weather Specialist Chris Higgins about what the data does and doesn’t tell us, and why he doesn’t sell with the idea that a system is working. going through the Midwest this weekend will be the system that brings St. Louis crosses that one-inch mark, although he says it’s the best chance we’ve seen so far this season.
