The slushy mess may prove hazardous for overnight and morning commuters.  A freeze warning has been issued for the St. Louis area with temperatures expecting to dip into the 20s from Saturday night into Sunday morning.  If you have to be on the road overnight and early Sunday morning, watch for slick spots on bridges and overpasses.

The snow has moved out of the area for now, but 4Warn Meteorologist Steve Templeton says more snow is on the way.  More light snow may creep in Sunday evening around 5 p.m. with light accumulations expected.  The snow chance will be greater South of metropolitan St. Louis.  The snow should wind down early Monday morning.

Monday will be a short reprieve from the wintry weather.  More snow is expected on Tuesday and will later change over to rain.  Some good news on the horizon is a late week warm-up with temperatures jumping into the 60s.
