(KMOV) – A second massive winter storm in less than a week slammed the Midwest, though the St. Louis area saw mostly rain this time around.

While the St. Louis metro area saw mostly rain, Franklin, Warren, Lincoln and Pike counties saw a slushy mix of snow and sleet with light accumulations.

Looking forward, spotty snow showers are possible in the St. Louis area Wednesday.

A newly-issued Winter Weather Advisory is in effect in Missouri for Pike, Lincoln, Warren, Gasconade and Phelps counties through until 12 p.m. Wednesday. An advisory was also put into effect for Calhoun County in Illinois.

In these areas, freezing drizzle might add a light glze early in the morning.

“These snow showers won't produce much accumulation, but timing could be key as we could get hit during the morning drive,” said News 4 Chief Meteorologist Steve Templeton.

Templeton says treated roads will be mainly slushly, but we might see snow collect on grass.
