Cold temperatures, snowy roads cause Monday morning woes

ST. LOUIS (KSDK) – The sleet and snow have moved for the most part out of the area, but the problems they left behind continue to pile up.

Crews have been working overnight to get the roads cleared and ready for the Monday morning commute, but chilly temperatures have made the job that much harder.

Areas to the north and west are under a wind chill advisory until 10 a.m., and the St. Louis metropolitan area will have a hard time getting into the low 20s throughout the day.

Temperatures will be between 0 and 8 degrees throughout the region this morning, according to NewsChannel 5 meteorologist Scott Connell.
