Wintry weather moving through Region 8 today

(KAIT) - Winter Weather is expected for parts of Region 8 throughout Sunday.

According to the Region 8 StormTEAM, most of the precipitation will be sleet before it changes to freezing rain. Meteorologist Justin Logan says Region 8 could see up to 0.20 inches of ice.

We could also see some snow in Southeast Missouri. That could total up to an inch of snow and sleet combined before it changes to freezing rain.

Chief Meteorologist Ryan Vaughan says it won't take much sleet to cover the roads because it has been so cold recently.

Ryan did say that travel conditions should be fine by Monday.
