ST. LOUIS, Mo. -  The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the St. Louis area as our next weather system arrives overnight bringing a light mix of snow, sleet, and freezing drizzle. The initial precipitation will be mostly snow with some sleet mixing in.  That snow will transition to sleet and freezing drizzle in the early morning hours of Sunday.

By 9:00 am, the precipitation tapers off. Accumulations of snow will be minor, less than 1" of sleet and snow for the St. Louis region. But there could also be a very light glaze of ice, even in spots that see very little snow.  This is not going to be as heavy as the Friday system, and not even as much ice as last Sunday. However, it will be enough of a very light mix to create a potential for impacts to travel. You will definitely need to be aware of changing road conditions if you're going to be out late tonight or early Sunday morning. Temperatures quickly warm above freezing Sunday morning, ending the concern for ice. Cloudy with spots of rain the Sunday afternoon with highs in the upper 30°s to low 40°s.
