The First Weekend of Spring in St. Louis Will Be Ruined By Snow

Posted By on Fri, Mar 22, 2013 at 2:18 PM


Spring is officially here! And with it comes forecasts of five to eight inches of snow in St. Louis.

So instead of giving you Daily RFT's planned ode to spring in St. Louis, we direct you you dear readers to our 20 Reasons to Love Winter in St. Louis, because apparently Mother Nature is not ready to move on. (Side note, this could be the most snow on any day in the last week of March in more than 60 years!)

So brace yourselves, St. Louis. Or choose denial. Sometimes the experts are wrong, right?

The National Weather Service folks say it will be gross and rainy Saturday afternoon and night, but then the colder airs will come and the rain will become snow around midnight. It will then "continue through much of the day on Sunday." Great.

In honor of the untimely snow, we give you the best unhappy Tweets today and, for funsies, a video look back at the February snow storm that caused citywide chaos.

Happy Friday!

Continue for some snow videos to get you in the mood for Sunday.

Here are our favorite Vine videos from the last snow storm:
