Winter Mix Sunday Morning



Freezing drizzle is moving out of the area and should be clear by 9-10AM. Roads are likely hazardous so use caution.

Tue PM into Wed looks to be another possible snow to freezing drizzle scenario, especially south of the Mo River. There is still uncertainty to snow and ice totals because of that transition.
