Tuesday will be mostly sunny, breezy and cold with highs in the 30s.

On Monday evening and night, rain looks to mix with or change to wet snow mainly over SE Missouri and S Illinois. However, temps aloft are looking warmer, which means we may get less snow and more light freezing rain or sleet even as north winds gust and air temps drop.

This could result in some slick or icy conditions Monday evening. Later overnight cold north winds will push temps below freezing even in southeastern counties, so some icy roadways could develop even there.
