It's 7:00 on Sunday morning and I'm here in the Storm Center...again. I've been providing some updates on the air and the web to keep everyone informed. Blowing and drifting snow is still a problem but at least the snowfall has ended. But not without fanfare.

Snowfall totals ranged from under an inch in the far southern counties, where it mixed with sleet and rain, to over 8 inches to the northeast.

Officially Lambert received 6.9 inches of snow for December 15. That breaks the old daily record of 1.8 inches set back in 1989. It is the 4th snowiest December day on record in St. Louis and the most single day snow we've seen in almost 5 years.

Please take it slow in the snow. Road conditions are improving but there are still a number of cars running off the road across the area. Up to the minute road conditions are available here on KMOV.com. If you must travel make sure you have enough gas and dress for the conditions.

If you're a kid...Have fun!

Here's a link to a storm summary from the National Weather Service.
