(KMOV.com) -- After another stretch of warmer-than-normal winter weather, old man winter strikes back! 

Send us your snow photos!

Old Man Winter saw fit to grace the St. Louis area with snow Thursday  morning and it caused some major issues on area roadways.  Most snow total reports have not exceeded 3 inches.  Area roadways were still dangerous due to a combination of snow, wind and low temperatures.  That combination has been blamed on numerous accidents in the St. Louis area

Additional light snow or flurries are possible into Thursday afternoon, but most of the accumulating snow should be on the ground by lunchtime.  In the St. Louis metropolitan area specifically, we’re thinking the vast majority of the accumulation will occur from 3 a.m. – 9 a.m.

We’ll likely be in the 20s nearly all day Thursday.  Northwest winds gusting to near 30 mph will hold the wind chill in the teens for much of the day.  A Winter weather advisory remains in effect until 6 p.m. Thursday.  Unfortunately, Friday doesn’t look much warmer.

Track the snow in your neighborhood with the 4Warn Snow Tracker.
