Winter weather on Friday seeing big changes

ST. LOUIS ( -- A big change in the storm track could mean less snow and sleet for the St. Louis area late today.

Expect mainly dry weather through early afternoon. There could be a few snow flakes north of St. Louis during the day.  By late afternoon and evening a quick band of light rain to sleet to snow may push through mainly south of St. Louis.  New forecasts have trended south and lighter on the snowfall amounts, in fact this system could miss us all together.  Right now it looks like a weaker band of light snow or mix will push through the southern half of the viewing area through tonight.

If we get accumulations it's mainly 1" or less on grass.  Where snow or sleet develop though, we could get some slick spots by late evening as above freezing temperatures initially melt the snow on pavement and then it turns slick in spots as it gets colder. 

Stay tuned for updates as the forecast models may shift the track again.

Near record cold Saturday morning and a chance for wet snow or rain mix on Sunday too. Click here to view the 7-day forecast.
