Those who have to travel Tuesday into Wednesday morning should prepare for the possibility of hazardous driving conditions with our next chance of wintry weather approaching.
Monday night, a quick shot of snow is possible for northern Missouri and central Illinois, clipping our northern counties.
Freezing drizzle is also possible Monday night into Tuesday morning, but most of the area has a better chance of precipitation by Tuesday afternoon into the evening.
The track of the storm will determine which areas will see snow versus a wintry mix, but it appears much of the bi-state will be under the gun for accumulation. 1-3" is likely, with pockets or 4" possible in heavier snow bands.
Accumulation will begin in the St. Louis metro before the evening rush on Tuesday, possibly causing poor road conditions.
Snow will taper off quickly Wednesday morning to the east, but could still have an impact on the Wednesday morning commute to work and school.
