The weather may be pleasant Monday afternoon, but that is about to change.
Snow is expected to arrive late tonight with some areas seeing up to two inches of snow. Temperatures are also expected to drop, with wind chills as low as ten-below Tuesday.
In anticipation of the weather, St. Louis street crews are already out treating the pavement.
St. Louis is putting on a fresh face before the start of the baseball playoffs. The Cardinals open with home games tomorrow and Friday against the Pittsburgh Pirates and St. Louis Street Department Director Todd Waelterman says the sprucing up of the city is underway.
"We've had crews out painting up the crosswalks for pedestrian safety, tightening up the potholes, closing up some construction around the stadium, trimming trees, picking up litter, cleaning up Kiener Plaza and preparing for some little extra services as these big parties happen downtown," said Waelterman.
Festivities begin with the Cardinals rally at Kiener Plaza at 1 o'clock. Game time is 4:07.
