St. Louis Weather Is Drunk, But Missouri Weather Is a Complete Shitshow

Posted By on Thu, Feb 7, 2019 at 10:36 AM


Missouri weather got drunk as hell last night and decided to swipe right on every type of weather system it could dig up. Yep, Missouri weather is so slutty that it screwed the entire state in one night.

Check out this insane graphic from meteorologist Kenton Gewecke from KOMU in Columbia. It shows just how hard Missouri weather worked it, in all kinds of new and exciting ways, to keep Show Me State residents wide awake all night long.



For hours on end, it pounded the state with a bed-rattling combination of booming thunder, snow, sleet, ice storms, thunderstorms, hail, high winds, tornado warnings, dense fog and even cloud-to-ground lightning.

Just in the past week, St. Louis temperatures have swung from extreme cold from the Polar Vortex all the way up to temps in the 60s over the weekend. And now that we've escaped the insane fog cloud and bone-shaking thunder of last night, the temperature is currently plummeting back to a low of just eleven degrees tonight.

Damn, weather. That was an epic bender. Now calm yourself. We're still sore from yesterday and you're wearing us all out.
