ST. LOUIS — If I could change the weather to sunshine and 70s for you, I would. But unfortunately, no luck.
Early this week 5 On Your Side's Anthony Slaughter called for a rain/snow mix Sunday morning. Here we are, Sunday morning, and here it is!
Some areas, like Wentzville where our Jim Castillo lives got a quick burst of large, wet snowflakes that quickly covered trees and grass.
As I drove from downtown to west county around 10:30 a.m., I about saw it all. Downtown had cold drizzle, but the time I was driving through Clayton I could hear the "tick, tick, tick" of ice hitting my car. Briefly through Town and Country I saw some big, fat flakes flying. Those flakes, while beautiful were not enough to stick to the grass.
Now I love snow, but no luck at my house near Chesterfield, just a slushy mess on my deck.
The quick burst of snow, sleet, ice and rain/snow mix will be short lived. If your area got a little snow, like some spots around I-70, think of it as winter giving you a kiss goodbye. This may just be the last of the "snow" word for some time.
Cold rain showers will fill in around lunch. The remainder of the day will be cool, highs barely in the 40s with off and on rain.
Good news for my friends dying for real spring-like temperatures, mid to upper 60s are in the forecast this week!
