Just when it seemed St. Peters had put winter in its rearview mirror, a wintry surprise was waiting on Monday morning.
Residents woke up to falling snow, covered roads and slick side walks. A late-night wintry mix started around 10 p.m. and didn't stop. By the time workers were waking up and ready for the morning commute, snow was falling.
Sidewalks and roads were covered in a slushy mix, slowing down drivers heading into work. The MoDOT traveler information map shows plenty of covered roads in St. Charles County. Plows were out early in St. Peters hitting the roads and trying to keep up with the storm.
Weather.com predicts 1 to 3 inches of snow in the next 36 hours. A rainy/snowy mix could keep falling througout the day.
Today: Occasional rain and snow, becoming all rain after 4pm. High near 40. Northeast wind between 11 and 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. Total daytime snow accumulation of around an inch possible.
Tonight: Occasional snow, possibly mixed with rain, becoming all rain after 7pm, then gradually ending. Low around 33. North wind between 6 and 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.
One bit of good news: no snow days. Fort Zumwalt, Francis Howell and Lutheran High School are all on spring break this week.
