(KMOV) – Today may be the coldest Feb. 6 in history, according to the National Weather Service in St. Louis.

Thursday morning started off with temperatures in the single digits, though wind chills made it feel between minus-5 and minus-10 degrees in St. Louis.

Other cities in the News 4 viewing area were seeing temperatures in the negatives with even lower wind chills.

“Frostbite can occur in as little as 10 minutes, so be very, very careful out,” said News 4 Meteorologist Kent Ehrhardt.

Temperatures on Thursday were expected to reach a high of 11 alongside brutal wind chills that could stay below 0 throughout the day.

That high would set the record low maximum temperature in St. Louis for Feb. 6. The current record is 14 degrees, which was set in 1978.

Thursday night’s temps will drop to about 0 with less wind.


Friday will see a high of around 21 and there’s a chance light snow will make an appearance by nighttime.
