Freezing drizzle/rain to lead to possible ice overnight (1/29/23)

A Winter Weather Advisory from Sunday evening through Monday morning has been issued for expected freezing drizzle. Ice accumulations by Monday morning are likely to be a light glaze up to one tenth of an inch with this round first.

This has also been issued ahead of the Monday morning commute to anticipate poor travel conditions in areas. Especially on elevated surfaces, driving on bridges/overpasses or walking in parking lots and sidewalks could be slippery before things warm by the later morning hours.


The first wave of winter weather we experience overnight is more scattered in nature and does not amount to much. The concern is, it’ll be freezing drizzle which doesn’t take much to cause issues. Then another winter system comes through Monday night with more of the focus for impacts going forward.

Again, it does not take much to create slick spots, walking or driving, and looking at models, most show up to a tenth of an inch possible throughout the warned area in southeast Missouri, southern Illinois and western Kentucky.

Ice Accum

Along with the passing cold front, wind chills by Monday morning will range from about 10-25°, with colder air expected Tuesday morning.

Wind Chill Monday

Then by Monday night, another system brings more of a snow/sleet/wintry mix starting in the evening with better chances after the evening commute. The temperatures will support more snow and sleet as the lower layer of the atmosphere becomes colder through a deeper depth.

Mon Night

We’ve got a colder stretch through the beginning of February, with rain chances toward the end of the week once we get above freezing again. Then, more sunshine and warmer weather by next weekend.
