A Look Back at the St. Louis Blizzard of ‘82

Tuesday, November 15, 2011 @ 10:00 AM-12:01 PM

Featured Speaker: Charles E. Graves, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Saint Louis University

It was a 1 in 70 year snow event– the heavy snowfall in January of 1982, and infamous in the St. Louis region. Thousands of motorists were stranded, the airport, Amtrak and bus service were shut down, and scores of schools and businesses were closed for up to a week after the snow ended. Blanketing the area in 13 inches of snow, it was the most on record for any storm since 1912. Dr. Charles Graves takes a look back at the infamous Blizzard of ’82. Why was the snowfall so prolific? Have we seen anything close to that event in recent history? And will we again?
