...RECORDS FOR LEAST SNOWIEST SEASON (OCT-MAY) ON RECORD FOR ST.
LOUIS AND COLUMBIA MAY BE IN JEOPARDY...

Well-below normal snowfall has been observed at both official
climate stations which measure snowfall in the CWA so far this
season. Since October 1, St. Louis has only received 1.4" with
Columbia measuring a total of 1.6". With very warm weather likely
into late February, and about 1 in 5 Marches in St. Louis and 1 in
4 in Columbia receiving no measurable snowfall, there is a possibility
that one or both sites may break futility records for seasonal
snowfall. Below is a list of the least snowiest seasons on record
for both cities with the season defined here as October through
May. This time period was chosen because snowfall has been observed
as early as October and as late as May.
