(KMOV) – Another round of winter storms made its way into the News 4 viewing area on Tuesday, leaving several local municipalities under a barrage of ice and snow.

What began as a light drizzle in most of the viewing area quickly changed over to light slushy snow Tuesday morning.

“Temperatures should remain above freezing all day so any accumulation should be brief and slushy, mainly on grassy areas,” said News 4 Meteorologist Kent Ehrhardt.

Kent said if temperatures do go below freezing, St. Louis could get up to two inches of snow. He said the heaviest snowfall should occur from mid-morning through midday.

“A few flurries will continue through the evening rush, but again, temperatures are expected to be above freezing with little if any additional accumulation,” he said.

While snow isn’t forecasted to stick in most areas, it will be a blustery afternoon, with 10 to 20 mph and higher gusts of winds expected.

Tuesday night, temperatures will drop to the upper-20s, with breezy conditions sticking around.

“Any light snow should taper off in the evening,” said Kent.

The precipitation should be gone by Wednesday, which will see temperatures rise up into the 40s.
