First snow event of the season in St. Louis

The first winter storm of the season is on the way for the St. Louis area on Monday. As with many storms, there are still a few unresolved points that can have huge implications for how much snow falls, where the heaviest snow falls, and if we see any snow at all. The track of the low pressure center is the main factor. At this stage in the forecast, it appears that the chance for the city to wake up Tuesday morning with a snow cover is near 100% - it's just a matter of how deep that will be. Some freezing rain icing and sleet will be possible in the transition zone to the east of the snow, which also could impact the STL metro.

I am planning to be out shooting video during this event, so stay tuned for updates during and after the storm.
