The City of St. Louis is located on the Mississippi River, the eastern boundary of the State of Missouri, just below its confluence with the Missouri River. The City is popularly known as the "Gateway of the West," due to its central location and historic role in the nation's westward expansion. Commemorating this role is the 630 foot stainless steel Gateway Arch, the world's tallest man made monument, which is the focal point of the 86 acre Jefferson National Expansion Memorial on the downtown riverfront.

The month of April is characterized by rising daily high temperatures, with daily highs increasing from 63°F to 72°F over the course of the month.
