St. Louis weather is notorious for changing rapidly, and you'll hear people say something along the lines of, "If you don't like the weather, then wait 10 minutes." Summer is the most unbearable, as the temperature hangs around 90 degrees with a high humidity level throughout June, July, and August. Fall is generally mild, and temperatures remain in the 70s and 60s until mid-October. Fall rain tends to come in streaks, where there are a few days in a row without the sun. The worst of winter doesn’t hit until late December or early January, when temperatures sit right around 32 degrees. St. Louis does get snow, but sleet and ice are much more frequent. Spring can vary greatly from year to year. Some years, it will be in the 50s and 60s as early as February, but in other years, the warm weather won't begin until late March or April. Rain is also frequent in the spring months.

Students' opinions on weather are relative depending on their home state. Students coming from locations north of St. Louis appreciate the milder winters and warmer spring and fall seasons but dread the summer heat. Students from cities south of St. Louis dislike the winters but enjoy the rest of the seasons. Walking from class to class no matter the elements means that students should have clothing for all seasons. Invest in rain gear, snow gear, and light clothing for summer, and you'll be set.
