Frantic Local Weatherman Just Downgraded St. Louis Blizzard to a Few Inches of Snow -- If That

Posted By on Tue, Feb 1, 2011 at 1:39 PM

Here in the RFT "Weather Center" (a cubicle within earshot of a TV tuned into non-stop coverage of Snowmaggedon) we just heard the damndest thing. That blizzard forecast for St. Louis may turn out to produce just a few inches of snow -- if that. According to the guy squawking on KMOV Channel 4, St. Louis could just see a bit more of the sleet that's been falling all day.

Here's the latest radar with St. Louis in the purple band of sleet that's moving northeast and should be out of here by late afternoon.
