ST. LOUIS, Mo. — A fast hit of winter weather is on the way. The National Weather Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for this evening into tonight.
Fox 2 Meteorologist Angela Hutti says a wet and heavy will arrive around 4 p.m. to the southwest then is into metro St. Louis around 6 p.m. as it works north-northeast. That snow will steadily transition to sleet, then freezing rain, and finally freezing drizzle and then drizzle into the early hours of Wednesday.
Accumulations of snow and sleet will range from 1” to as much as 3” in a few spots with a very light glaze of ice also possible. The greatest impacts will come between 6 p.m. and midnight.
This storm will not affect the afternoon bus stop but may impact the latter half of the evening commute. There may be some lingering effects for the Wednesday morning rush-hour. With temperatures just above freezing (34-36°), widespread icy roads are not expected for the Wednesday AM rush. However, the usual bridges, overpasses, and edges of curved exit ramps may be slick.

- What – Heavy wet snow changing to sleet then freezing rain then drizzle
- Amounts – 1” to 3” of snow and sleet (probably closer to 1”)
