ST. LOUIS — A winter storm brought ice and snow to parts of the Midwest Friday. Major travel delays were reported as airlines struggled to adjust to the ice and snow.
Locally, freezing rain and sleet created a glaze on elevated surfaces and some roads. MoDOT and IDOT crews worked throughout the day treating the roads as the freezing rain fell during the afternoon. With road temperatures just above freezing, most of the light ice accumulated on trees, signs and bridges.
As temperatures warm above freezing from southwest to northeast, the freezing rain has changed to rain and showers will continue into early Saturday. Locally, more than an inch of rain will fall. A flood watch has been issued for our area as the ground is saturated from last week's heavy rain.
