The winter storm that started moving in Thursday has now taken over southern Missouri, dropping 6-8" of snow in many places along I-44, near Springfield and West Plains, and east to Farmington. Snow is filtering in around the Lake of the Ozarks and is encountering some dry air, allowing for some of it to evaporate before hitting the ground. It is still visible on radar, so please let us know if you're seeing snow, have pictures, or gather snow totals. They help us verify what we're seeing on the radar.
Snow will begin to taper from west to east, with snow ending for mid-Missouri late this afternoon. By the end of the event, areas along and south of Hwy. 50 including Jefferson City should see 1-2", near the lake area will be closer to 3-4", and points along and south of I-44 5-6"+.
Clouds will decrease early this evening, leaving mostly clear skies after midnight. Clear skies coupled with an arctic high pressure will help temperatures drop into the single digits. Wind chill values will be close to 0 with north winds at 10 mph.
Another chance for snow is possible Sunday, with an additional 1-2" of snow mixed with some freezing drizzle.
