ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Light, cold rain increased across the metro earlier today. For us, temperatures close to the surface remain in the upper 30s and 40s through the afternoon so we will likely continue to see just cold rain.
The western portion of Missouri has seen wet snow mixing in from Kansas City, to Sedalia, inching towards Columbia. This afternoon with temperatures continuing to hover in the mid to upper 30s out west, some places are reporting sleet. Reports of sleet have come in from Columbia, Bellflower, Sedalia. Snow reports have also some in from Centralia, Mexico, and Columbia.
With some of this changing over to snow, places from Kansas City to the western portions of Columbia may see 1″ to 2″ of snow, at the very most. Most of it will melt on contact with the ground and roadways, elevated surfaces and grassy areas may see a light coating.
Viewer images from mid-Missouri show snow and sleet accumulation.
The MODOT cameras show the changing conditions as you move from west to east across the state.
But as you move east, snow changes over to sleet, and eventually making the transition to cold rain.
How about for the St. Louis metro? Will we see any snow? It will likely remain as cold rain through the entire day. Some of our western communities may see a few wet flakes mixing in, places like Pike County, Montgomery County, Gasconade County. This is as temperatures bounce from the mid 30s to upper 30s, at the warmest in the low 40s.
With rain ongoing through the evening, the overnight hours will continue to see patchy light rain, drizzle and fog. Temperatures tonight drop closer to the mid 30s in St. Louis.
