St. Louis prepares for second winter storm

   St. Louis is bracing for its next winter storm.  The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the entire metro area from noon Friday through 6:00 p.m. Saturday.  The forecast is calling for a mix of rain, freezing rain and snow.  
   That mix makes it tough for crews to get a head start by pre-treating roads.  
   St. Louis Streets Department spokesman Kent Flake told Fox 2 News there's not much the crews can do to prepare for a winter storm that starts with rain.  "Any time it rains, you can't brine, you can't pre-treat," he said.  "Anything you put on the street just washes down the drains.  So this is when we just have to sit back and wait for it to actually snow and take care of it."
   Flake says city crews and trucks are standing by, ready to begin spreading salt brine as soon as frozen precipitation begins to fall.  
   By contrast, MoDOT and IDOT officials opted to begin pre-treating roads Thursday.
   MoDOT spokesman Drew Gates says they wanted to err on the side of caution. "Just to make sure that if we do start off with some ice, that we have something on the roadway that will help start that melting process and try to keep it from locking down into the roads," Gates said.
