ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The snowy, slippery January continues to cause problems in the St. Louis area.
   Several accidents were reported Monday morning throughout the region and several schools are closed -- many for the third school day in a row.
   The latest problems come after about an inch of snow fell Sunday, followed by a light freezing drizzle during the Monday morning rush hour. The Missouri State Highway Patrol said interstates 64 and 70 in parts of St. Louis and St. Charles counties were particularly slick.
   Drivers were urged to be careful for slippery conditions, even if the road looks safe.
   The latest batch of winter weather follows last week's storm that brought up to a foot of snow in parts of the region.
