8:30am Weather Update 1/20

So far the snow is coming down pretty hard to the north. I have seen reports of 5" to as much as 12.5" of snow around the St. Louis area. My girlfriend, who is in Chesterfield, Mo, says it is still snowing. (I think I have found the band of heavy snow I've been talking about. haha)

The snow is arriving and falling in the KFVS viewing are as I type. Already 1" of snow has been measured in Farmington, Mo, Ste. Genevieve, Mo and Hamilton County, Il. I just went outside and measured 1" of snow in Cape Girardeau, Mo.

Here is a view of I-55 southbound at mile marker 129 in Perryville, Mo around 8:50am CT.
