ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - As our day of rest draws to a close, our mini winter break is also coming to an end. Almost.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day will start with warmer than normal temperatures in the low 30s at sunrise and, with just a few clouds, highs will work their way into the low to mid 40s.
But Monday evening, a (very) cold front rides through the area, bringing with it a dusting to an inch of snow for most, strong northwest winds for all, and temperatures that will fall into the teens by Tuesday morning and never warm beyond the teens Tuesday afternoon.
Look for a high near 43 Monday afternoon, a low Tuesday morning near 12 (with wind chills between -5 and -10) and a high around 17 Tuesday afternoon.
As for the snow Monday night into early Tuesday, it won't be much, because of strong winds visibilities will be reduced and slick spots may develop.
Thirties return Wednesday but highs in the teens are back again Thursday. By Friday and into next weekend we settle, we warm and, assuming Mother Nature stays on script, that would leave most of us grateful.
