By Thursday morning temperatures will be near the freezing mark. 

"The morning commute will be cold and should be dry, though there could be some patchy ice from damp roads as we approach freezing," said Ehrhardt.

Ehrhardt said it’s likely some light snow could accumulate by the evening commute.

Snow will move into the southwestern parts of the viewing area by late morning and into the Metro area by the early afternoon. 

"By the evening commute light accumulations of snow are likely in the Metro area," said Ehrhardt.

The snow will continue to fall through the evening from just north of the Metro into the southern part of the viewing area, where snow will mix with ice.

Ehrhardt said in total the Metro area should get between two and four inches of snow. 

"The areas receiving the most snow and the timing of the snow and ice may require additional adjustments so stay tuned to News 4 and KMOV.com for frequent updates," he said.
