These sub-zero temperatures were apparently just a prelude to the fact that the St. Louis area could soon get nine inches of snow.

It’s coming down hard across the Midwest, leaving an unsexy version of NSFW on the streets because they are literally unsafe. Even Texas was sprayed with the white stuff and it’s practically closed half of the state.

Up here in Missouri we knew it was on its way and we’re more willing to handle an icy load (we have plows, salt trucks, etc), but even we’re not ready to take nine full inches.

The snow in the St. Louis area is expected to continue through tonight and the snow “intensity” is expected to increase as well.

From the NWS:

“A major winter storm is expected to hit the area tonight and tonight. Light snow this morning will increase in intensity this afternoon and continue into the evening. The snow can be heavy at times. Snow accumulations of 5 to 9 inches are expected on the St. Louis subway and in locations to the south and east. Elsewhere, 2 to 5 inches of snow is expected.

Dangerous wind chills of -15 to -30 ° F are expected in much of the area today through Tuesday. Limit your time outdoors …
