UPDATE, SUNDAY 2:15 p.m.:
The winter storm is starting to wind down across mid-Missouri this afternoon, as most of the heavy snow has pushed on to the east. Totals range from 1-8" so far across the viewing area. Another 1-2" is still possible this afternoon and evening as the potent system moves into the Ohio Valley.
Another weaker area of low pressure will drift southward tonight allowing for light flurries to stick around for much of the day tomorrow.
Winds have begun to shift to the northwest and are sustained at 15-20 miles per hour, with gusts up to 30 miles per hour through tomorrow. This may cause some blowing snow as lighter, fluffier snow will be falling for the remainder of the night.

UPDATE, SATURDAY NIGHT:
A winter storm is still on track to impact mid-Missouri very early tomorrow morning. Rain has moved into the region and will continue to fall throughout the evening tonight, but will change over to snow between 3:00 and 4:00 a.m. Sunday. The snow will start out light...then become a wet, heavy snow for most of the day tomorrow. Areas along and north of I-70 could see 8-10", with some localized areas receiving an inch or so more if atmospheric instability provides for higher snowfall rates. Along and north of U.S. 50 could see 6-8", south of U.S. 50 and near the Lake Area could see 4-6", and south of I-44 could see 1-4."
Light snow showers could last into Monday, bringing an additional 0.5" to 1" of snow. Cool air will be in place until Thursday, when we finally see highs closer to normal, in the 50s.
