   Residents in the St. Louis area are bracing for the next round of winter weather.  Snow, cold and wind... the next winter storm will have a little bit of everything.
   Overnight, widely scattered snow showers are expected to spread across the metro area ahead of a blast of arctic air.  Up to an inch or two of accumulation is possible by Tuesday morning, especially along and east of the Mississippi River.  Farther south and west could see just a dusting.  
   Then temperatures will nose-dive, dropping into the mid-teens by 6:00 a.m. with wind chills around zero.  That's because of strong winds from the northwest.
   A Wind Advisory is in effect until 6:00 a.m.  Sustained winds of 20 TO 30 mph are expected during the early morning hours, with gusts up to 45 mph.  The strong winds could make driving difficult, especially for high-profile vehicles and in areas were there's snow falling.
  By 1 a.m., transportation officials were reporting roads in northeastern Missouri as snow-covered, including portions of Interstate 70 through Warren and Montgomery Counties.  Most roads in St. Charles and St. Louis Counties were reported to be partially snow covered.  Current road conditions can be found on MoDOT's traveler website
   Illinois officials report roads and highways in central and northern Illinois are snow covered.  Current conditions can be found on IDOT's winter road conditions website
 
 
 

Stan Musial bridge to open in Feb.

Monday, 20 January 2014 04:17 Published in Local News
   ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge is scheduled to open early next month.
   The new bridge will carry Interstate 70 over the Mississippi River. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the four-lane, cable-stayed bridge and associated highway projects are being funded with a combination of Missouri, Illinois and federal money.
   The Missouri Department of Transportation says the  bridge will be open from noon to 4 p.m. on Feb. 8 to walkers, runners and bicyclists who want a close-up view of the bridge. Festivities include a ribbon-cutting and a 3 p.m. parade.
   Department spokesman Andrew Gates says the agency is preparing for as many as 20,000 people to attend the events.
   Gates says the bridge is expected to open to traffic Feb. 9.
 
   A Chesterfield man is expected to recover after falling through the ice on Creve Coeur Lake Sunday while trying to rescue his dog.  
   Captain Robert Daus of the Maryland Heights Fire Protection District says passersby saw the man go out onto the ice after his dog fell through.  He was able to pull the dog out, but then fell in himself.  He was stuck.  
   Captain Daus tells Fox 2 News that crews put on their ice rescue gear on the way to the scene, and immediately went to work. They used a rope to secure the man and pull him out.
   "This is what we train for," Daus said.  "We hope we never have to use this type of training, honestly, but you know, this is where we get out there and it pays off."
   Daus says the man, who's in his late 60's, was taken to the hospital with hypothermia, but is expected to recover.  So is his dog.
