St. Louis Weather:
ST. LOUIS – Saturday morning started off with some patchy freezing drizzle as air temperatures were in the 20s and road temperatures were sitting in the teens and low 20s. There were a few reports of light icing, mainly on untreated surfaces.
Temperatures have climbed above freezing in and around the St. Louis metro which has prompted the National Weather Service to cancel the Winter Weather Advisory early for much of the viewing area.
A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 9 p.m. Saturday for some of our central Illinois counties where temperatures are still below freezing.
This afternoon and evening, patchy rain chances increase. Scattered showers continue into the overnight hours coming to an end from northwest to southeast as a cold front sweeps across the area.
For Sunday, we’ll wake up in the mid to upper 30s but expect falling temperatures to the 20s by the afternoon with gusty northerly winds. The gusty winds will cause wind chills to be in the teens.
This afternoon for those areas still in the Winter Weather Advisory, the main roads are likely to be fine because there is a lot of product on them from Thursday’s weather event. However, your local neighborhood streets, driveways, sidewalks, outdoor stairways, deck surfaces (really anything outside that has not been treated) will likely get a thin film of ice. If an untreated surface looks wet, there’s a good chance it’s ice which presents a slip-and-fall hazard.
