Fri, 28 Feb 2014 13:23:54 GMT — It was a cold start on Friday morning with temperatures in the teens and 20s. Clear skies will give way to clouds by the afternoon with occasional rain. The air above Mid-Missouri is extremely dry, which will cause two things to happen. One - a lot of the rain won't make it to the ground. Two - as the rain evaporates, the air will cool allowing a changeover to snow. High temperatures will reach the lower-mid 40s which will cut down on the chances of accumulations. As the light rain and snow taper off Friday night, there may be .1-.5" (if that) of snow on the ground, especially north of I-70.Clouds will linger Friday night into Saturday as a cold front sends lows in the 20s. We'll work with cloudy skies on Saturday as a stronger storm takes aim on the region. This next system will likely bring a mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain to the area late Saturday through Sunday. A Winter Storm Watch will be in effect during that time.Follow the KRCG 13 StormVision Weather Team for the latest updates.
