With its climate being in somewhat of a purgatory, St. Louis is in the transitional zone between the humid continental climate and the humid subtropical climate. No matter which way it leans, the climate tends to be muggy. Though it gets quite chilly in the winter, December through February are actually the driest months; so if you don’t mind the cold, this is a great time to visit. The summers are hot and humid, but not to the point of discomfort.
Our ideal visit to St. Louis would be in the late summer or early fall. With the baseball season still going on and the football season just starting, the city glows with pride. The humidity isn’t as overwhelming during these months (think August and September), and the cold winter has yet to blow in. Though there are some heavy storms in the fall, they tend to be random. If you’re lucky, you’ll be in town during an Indian summer with warmer weather and the flowers staying in bloom into early December.
