It’s only halfway through November and we’re already dealing with our fourth snowfall in the St. Louis area.
You wouldn’t know it from this month, but heavy snow in November is pretty rare here.
Nov. 5-6, 1951: The biggest November snowfall was back in 1951. A recorded 10.3 inches of snow fell over a two-day period starting Nov. 5.
Nov. 26, 1975: On the day before Thanksgiving, nearly 8 inches of snow fell in the area. It was so disruptive, the annual Turkey Day Game between Kirkwood and Webster Groves had to be postponed.
Nov. 6-7, 1991: Only 3.9 inches fell in the area, but that was followed by three nights of record cold temperatures in the single digits and low teens.
Nov. 14-15, 2018: Much of the region had at least four inches of snow. Wentzville had eight. Troy had seven. Places such as Lake Saint Louis, Wentzville and Warrenton saw five inches or more. In Metro East, Columbia, Ill., was reporting nearly six inches, and Collinsville had five. The deepest snow appeared to be in the Wright City area, with a report of nine inches at 7 a.m., according to the National Weather Service.
