Winter storm sweeps into St. Louis

By Maria Hickey, KWMU

St. Louis, MO. – St. Louis is experiencing the first band of a winter storm that has moved across Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Illinois Thursday.

National Weather Service hydro meteorologist Butch Dye says this region can expect two to three inches by the time the snow stops this evening.

But he says another band will move through Thursday night.

"The next band that moves through will be producing anywhere from five to seven inches overnight bringing the total snow accumulation six to 10 inches by tomorrow morning," Dye said.

St. Louis Public Schools has cancelled all after school activities and sports events Thursday night.

The University of Missouri St. Louis also has cancelled evening classes.
