Some of last week's snow started to melt Saturday afternoon, and low overnight temperatures caused it to re-freeze, making roads slippery throughout the viewing area.

An ice storm is expected to hit parts of the United States on Sunday, and though St. Louis isn't in the line of fire, we are on the edge and may receive some freezing drizzle and a dusting of more snow in the afternoon hours. The precipitation will be patchy, and accumulation will not be significant. By Sunday night the snow total may be around one inch.

STORY: Local forecast

Sunday's temperature will peak at 28 degrees. We are not expected to rise above the freezing mark until Friday.

The biggest concern about this weather system is slippery roads. Use caution when driving on bridges and overpasses, and be aware of the possibility of black ice.
