A band of light to moderate snow has made its way to the St. Louis area this morning.
The National Weather Service says a winter weather advisory remains in effect until six o’clock this evening for a variety of weather conditions, including snow, blowing snow, sleet or freezing drizzle and rain.
Jim Sieveking, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, says the snow is making the morning commute difficult.
The year 2011 got off to a strange start following a rare winter tornado on New Year's Eve. It was one of a number of severe weather events during the cold weather months, followed by the F-4 tornado that hit north St. Louis County and Lambert Airport in April, and plenty of flooding.
