St. Louis weather has been one big long miserable experience lately, but the forecast shows that there is hope on the way.
Sub-zero wind chills have combined with heaps of snow to make this one particularly intolerable February. We’re in the middle of a long stretch of enduring below-freezing temperatures every single day, but that will all change very soon.
Bursting pipes, shoveling sidewalks and the constant drip of the tap
will soon be behind us because not only are we expected to reach temperatures above freezing by this Saturday, we’re going to see some temperatures next week that would pass for springtime even if things weren’t currently so hellish out there.
Instead of single-digit temperatures, next week we’ll all be busting out our swimsuits because the forecast
is currently calling for a high of 52 degrees Fahrenheit on Tuesday and sunshine for at least three days in a row.
We just have to make it through one more round of snow coming through tonight and tomorrow and then this long deep freeze will begin to thaw. Finally.
Dolly Parton always says that if you want the rainbow you have to put up with the rain. But in our case here in the Midwest: If you want the summer you have to put up with this cold, stupid bummer.
Stay home if you can and stay safe. See you on the other side, St. Louis.
