ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) – Another winter storm is taking shape for Tuesday. It's mostly snow for metro St. Louis and points to the north. The snow may mix with sleet, especially for our southeastern counties. The snow and sleet should begin around midday Tuesday with the heaviest falling Tuesday afternoon and evening. Snow will continue through Tuesday night, ending as flurries on Wednesday.

The heaviest snowfall totals will be along and north of a line from  Jefferson City, MO to Troy, MO to Virden, IL where 5"+ of snow are likely. South of that line to the I-44 corridor in Missouri and the I-64 corridor in Illinois, look for 3" to 5" of snowfall. South of I-44 in Missouri and I-64 in Illinois look for more of a sleet/snow mix with 1" to 3" of accumulation likely. Farther south of there, a heavier glazing of freezing rain (ice) is forecasted.

Temperatures behind this storm will once again become frigid. Overnight lows will be near 0° Wednesday and Thursday nights.
