(KMOV) -- Residents were greeted with snow after a dusting swept through the St. Louis area Thursday afternoon.

The band of snow hit several municipalities in the area, but was expected to taper off to light snow or flurries towards the evening rush hour drive time.

“So far we’re hearing accumulations under a half inch on grass, but it’s melting on roads,” said News 4 Chief Meteorologist Steve Templeton.

Templeton said the snow on the street could turn to ice if temperatures dropped as low as predicted Thursday night.

After sunset, Templeton said temperatures could reach a low of 9 degrees, with wind chills at -5 degrees.

If that rings true, it would be the lowest temperatures in St. Louis in the past two years.

On Friday, we’ll see sunshine to start, then have partly cloudy and cold condition. Some flurries are possible in the evening, with light snow overnight into Saturday morning.
