Phase 2 arrives by late afternoon

ST. LOUIS - Phase one of our winter storm arrived Last night and this morning with freezing drizzle, followed by sleet, freezing rain and snow, with the occasional thunder version of each species. But that was only phase one.

Phase two is pushing into the region at present and will be colder, which means a mix to the south will change to snow while the rest of us should see almost exclusively snow from this afternoon through early Monday morning.

New accumulations of 3 to 5 inches of snow are likely for most areas but heavier snow is expected across the southern portion of our viewing area from Rolla to Farmington to Mt. Vernon, where 4 to 7 inches of freezing rain and sleet and then snow are possible.

After 2 a.m., flurries are still possible south and east of St. Louis through sunrise but strong winds may cause drifting and, thus, slippery roads and temperatures dropping into the low single digits combined with those strong winds will leave us with wind chills by Monday morning of between -10 and -20 degrees.

Skies will clear Monday but highs will only be in the upper teens and wind chills, even in the afternoon, will be -5 to +10.

A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until morning and a Wind Chill Advisory is in effect this evening through tomorrow morning.
