(KMOV.com) -- Get ready St. Louis. It looks like we could be in store for some more winter weather on Friday night into Saturday morning, according to 4Warn Chief Meteorologist Steve Templeton.

Temperatures Friday night are expected to dip down below freezing as a mix of rain, sleet and snow cover the area, causing road to become slick and wet.

“Most snow accumulation will hit the St. Louis area overnight,” says Templeton, “Expect most accumulation to happen between 2 and 4 a.m. Most areas will see total snowfall at 2-4 inches, but outlying areas could have more.”

 

Templeton says snow will continue to fall into Saturday morning, but should taper off by 10 a.m.

A Winter Weather Advisory will go into effect at 6 p.m. through 12 p.m. Saturday for the News 4 viewing area.

Saturday’s high is projected around 33 degrees with flurries continuing at times throughout the day.

“Watch for slick sidewalks or parking lots Saturday evening,” Templeton says, “As any melting from daytime will re-freeze at night on untreated surfaces.”

 

A Winter Weather Advisory is issued for a variety of winter weather conditions, such as snow, blowing snow, sleet or freezing drizzle and rain.
