Friday, 03 January 2014 02:18 Published in Local News

   St. Louis is seeing some of the harshest winter weather of the last couple of years.  Snow followed by bitterly cold temperatures seems to be a repeating pattern.  

   Snow is expected again Saturday night into Sunday, with 6-7 inches of accumulation possible.  

   That will be followed by historically cold temperatures and dangerous wind chills.  Meteorologists with the National Weather Service in St. Louis say it could be the coldest weather the metro area has seen in the last 20 years.  

   Low temperatures are expected to fall to zero or below both Monday and Tuesday mornings.  Daytime highs won't get out of the single digits and wind chills are expected to be 15-25 degrees below zero from Sunday through Tuesday. 

   Average highs and low temperatures for St. Louis in early January are 40 and 24.

   Articulated buses, with two segments linked by an accordion-like connection, will roll in St. Louis this year.

   Metro Transit will deploy the refurbished, 60 foot buses this year to address chronic overcrowding on the Grand line. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that reports that even with the buses running down Grand every 10 minutes, there isn't enough room to pick up all of the would-be passengers. The articulated buses have 14 more seats than the standard 40 foot buses.  

   More than $5 million in federal grants helped Metro buy 15 of the used buses.

   The first of them will be on the streets by March, with the rest running by midyear.
