ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-A large winter storm system is impacting much of the central United States. The center of that storm is moving right over the St. Louis region Sunday morning. Temperatures around the St. Louis area stayed above the freezing point overnight so most have seen a steady rain.  Along and north of I-70 in both Missouri and Illinois, there has been more snow mixing with the rain but no accumulation.

Across Pike and northern Lincoln Counties in Missouri and northern Calhoun, Greene, and Macoupin Counties in Illinois there has been enough overnight snow for about 1" to 2" to accumulate.

Snow will transition back to rain as temperatures warm up Sunday morning. Rain chances continue through the afternoon. As the storm begins to pull away tonight, colder air will rotate back into the St. Louis region. Some light snow is possible this evening as winds become gusty and temperatures drop.

Wet but not froze, that is the way to describe the roads around the St. Louis metro Sunday morning. A MoDOT spokesperson tells us workers were out overnight checking road temperatures but at this point everything is above freezing.

Crews have been spending a lot of time lately clearing drains to make sure all of the rainwater has a place to go and prevent ponding.

MoDOT officials say they are seeing snow to the north in Lincoln and Pike counties. IDOT officials say their roadways are in good shape except in their northern counties of Jersey, Greene and Calhoun. Those counties are seeing some snow and crews are out there.
