ST. LOUIS (KPLR) - The winter storm is gone, but wild weather is not. A brief period of quiet and cold weather will cover us from Sunday night through Monday. The morning temperatures will be in the upper teens and lower 20's. Look for afternoon highs to warm into the mid 30’s, well below normal for early March.

Things get interesting very quickly Monday night. A storm system cranks up over the western Plains and will pass well northwest of St. Louis. This track will push much warmer air into St. Louis for a very brief time Tuesday.

As the warm air approaches, freezing rain and sleet will develop Monday night before quickly changing to cold rain. Temperatures Monday night will slowly rise through the night and all day Tuesday.

Tuesday looks wet and relatively mild. But Wednesday will bring another fast change as cold air rushes back into Bi-State area. There’s a chance for more snow Wednesday, but there are lots of questions about where the snow may fall and even if snow will develop at all.
