ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - We are caught between two winter storms today. A clipper is slipping south into the area overnight. In this position, we end up in the warmer flow ahead of the storm center which will help kick our highs into the lower 40s in most areas.
The quick warm-up will be followed just as fast by an equally as cold shot of air tonight and Thursday as the Clipper passes just southwest of St. Louis.
Expect snow to develop after midnight from north to south and after 3am along and south of I-70. The snow may very briefly start as rain before temps chill enough to kick everything to snow.
Light snow will be widespread for the Thursday morning commute with dropping temperatures roads are likely to be sloppy and slushy.
Accumulations will be heaviest in a band north of St. Louis where totals of 2-5" are possible from Wentzville north/northwest up through Bowling Green. The rest of the region is in line for a general 1" to 2" snowfall.
Light snow will taper to flurries during the afternoon Thursday with temperatures falling through the 20s and into the upper teens.
