We've been hoping forecasters would back off that prediction for a large spring snowfall, but they haven't.
Our hopes for a change of heart among weather forecasters have been dashed. The National Weather Service and local meteorologists are still calling for a massive winter storm to sweep over the St. Louis metro area overnight tonight. Glenn Zimmerman, meteorologist for Patch news partner FOX2, says rain should start tonight in the area at about 9 or 10 p.m., changing into snow sometime Sunday morning. He said the heaviest bursts of snowfall may be from around noon to 2 p.m. That forecast differs only slight from the storm alert from the National Weather Service: Rain will overspread the area Saturday evening. The rain is expected to mix with and change over to snow late Saturday night and early Sunday morning. Snow, heavy at times, should …

The first snow of the 2012 winter season has fallen upon us. With this in mind, it’s important to be reminded of safe driving precautions.
