It’s the sixth day of sub-zero temperatures here in St. Louis, and the forecast doesn’t seem to be favorable either.
Spring will be here in a few weeks, but Mother Nature will show us its full potential by then, as temperatures in St. Louis are expected to stay below freezing until at least February 20, 2021.
Next Saturday the temperature could rise a little above freezing for a while during the day, which will end the probable fortnight below freezing. KMOV’s Steve Templeton says the local record for consecutive days below freezing occurred in 1977 when St. Louis endured eighteen long days of this brutal weather while listening to Rose Royce’s “Car Wash.” (Probably.)
The US National Weather Service in St. Louis says the worst is yet to come. As of today, they predict that a polar blast this weekend will bring temperatures below zero, with wind chills as low as -30 degrees Fahrenheit.
“Wind showers that are this low lead to frostbite and hypothermia or even death,” says the NWS. “If you have to venture outside, be sure to wear several layers of clothing and cover exposed skin.”
