ST. LOUIS,Mo. (KMOV.com) - A Winter Storm Warning is in effect through 6 p.m. today for most of our Illinois Counties.

The Wind Advisory continues through 6 p.m. today. Winds will gust to around 40 mph. The combination of high winds and heavy, wet snow has already caused major problems with trees and power lines.

Snow, or a little snow-rain mix, is winding down across the eastern half of the News 4 viewing area.

Precipitation will end this afternoon. A little light snow or rain may linger across the easternmost part of our area through early this evening.

Temperatures will fall back to around freezing tonight in St. Louis, with temperatures near 30 in outlying areas. Watch for icy spots to develop overnight into early Thursday.
