Current indications are the sleet may hold snow totals down a bit over most of the metro area with fewer than 2 inches of sleet and snow. Farther northwest of St. Louis, 1-3 inches of mostly snow is expected. Where freezing rain falls farther south of St. Louis, a glaze of ice and some sleet accumulation are expected, but amounts are expected to be a bit lower due to the glazing.
