(KTVI) - A fast moving storm system brought snow to St. Louis right on schedule Sunday morning, leaving behind 1” to 3″ of snow and sleet. With the snow exiting early Sunday afternoon, MoDOT, IDOT, and municipal crews were able to make fast work of clearing area roads and highways. That being said, with temperatures in the 20°s overnight you can expect some refreezing and therefore some icy spots for the Monday morning commute, especially on bridges, overpasses, and side streets.

Traffic should be lighter due to the President's Day holiday. Most schools and many businesses will be closed Monday.

Also Monday, the St. Louis region starts a warming trend that will take us through the week. With highs Monday near 40°, most of Sunday’s snow will be gone by the evening commute. Temperatures will be in the 60°s by the week's end.​
