We still stuck at predicting winter weather, but the NWS seems pretty confident that we're going to get some wet, heavy snow. This is what my nursing friends call heart attack snow because a lot of people go out, over exert themselves and end up in the hospital from shoveling. I prefer to shovel snow like a plow from my driveway. Start with a single line right down the middle, then work your way back up the drive but only allow your shovel to get into 2 or 3 inches of new snow as you go up. Yes this means you are going to traverse your driveway 3 inches at a time, but it's very low stress on your body because you aren't out there dead lifting snow. Either way, here are the NWS words of wisdom --jason

...WINTER STORM WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 3 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO 6 PM CST MONDAY...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN ST LOUIS HAS ISSUED A WINTER STORM WARNING FOR HEAVY SNOW...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM 3 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO 6 PM CST MONDAY.

* TIMING...SNOW WILL DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON AND CONTINUE THROUGH MONDAY AFTERNOON. THE SNOW MAY BE HEAVY AT TIMES.

* ACCUMULATIONS...6 TO 10 INCHES OF SNOW.
* WINDS...NORTHEAST 5 TO 10 MPH.
* IMPACTS...HEAVY SNOW WILL RESULT IN HAZARDOUS DRIVING CONDITIONS.

And that is why we don't do winter weather predictions ;) –jason

Evidently I have power over the winter weather, I complain about no snow and two days later the NWS says snow.
TL;DR It looks like snow this weekend, might be a little bit, might be 6 inches. As the east coast snowpocagedon reminded everyone, winter weather is hard to forecast and there is no sure thing. --jason

A STORM SYSTEM WILL BRING ACCUMULATING SNOW TO MOST OF OUR REGION SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY. RAIN IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP ON SATURDAY...AND THEN BECOME MIXED WITH AND CHANGE TO SNOW ALONG
AND NORTH OF INTERSTATE 70 ON SATURDAY NIGHT. BY SUNDAY...SNOW IS EXPECTED ALONG AND NORTH OF THE INTERSTATE 70 CORRIDOR...WITH THE RAIN GRADUALLY BECOMING MIXED WITH AND CHANGING OVER TO SNOW OVER
SOUTHEAST MISSOURI.
ALTHOUGH IT IS TOO EARLY TO PIN DOWN EXACT SNOW TOTALS...IT APPEARS THAT 4 TO 6 INCHES OF SNOW WILL BE POSSIBLE OVER NORTHEAST MISSOURI AND WEST CENTRAL ILLINOIS. THE SNOWFALL WILL DECREASE AS YOU HEAD SOUTH...WITH 1-3 INCHES ALONG THE INTERSTATE 70 CORRIDOR...AND ACCUMULATIONS OF UNDER AN INCH OVER SOUTHEAST MISSOURI.

I'm really bad about remembering weather conditions from past years. It always feels like it's hotter than it was last year or colder or that we had less snow. Fortunately sites like wunderground exist and I can go find out if I'm just getting old or if the weather really has lost its mind.
Keep in mind, this is WEATHER we are talking about and not CLIMATE which is something totally different, but going back to 2006 when I first moved to STL shows that we are looking remarkably similar to how we looked at this time last year. I recall sledding a little more, but we still have a chance in February. --jason
