A Weather Alert Day is in effect for Wednesday for the potential for accumulating, impactful snowfall through Wednesday afternoon.
TONIGHT: Increasing clouds with snow showers likely well after midnight, starting from southwest to northeast. Snow showers move into Columbia and Jefferson City between 4-6AM. Lows near 7 degrees.
TOMORROW: Snow showers through about midday, with scattered snow showers by late afternoon. Highs in the low 20s. Accumulation between 1-3″.
EXTENDED: Temperatures will get into the low 20s tomorrow, so that may help out with treatment slightly, but we still fall back into the single digits tomorrow night so I do think we are going to have issues in many areas for the PM commute. Most of Mid-MO will see 1-3″, with the 3″ amounts near the Lake and points south. Columbia and Jefferson City will see anywhere from 1-2″, with a dusting to 1″ for the Moberly and Macon areas. Wind chills will fall to a few degrees below zero tonight and tomorrow night.
We finally catch our breath through the end of the week with dry weather expected through Saturday, and gradually warming temperatures. We’ll see more sunshine each day getting us into the upper 20s by Friday, with upper 30s to near 40 on Saturday. Sunday will bring another front to the area, but temperatures during the day will be in the upper 30s to low 40s, meaning I’m expecting mainly rain with the next system. However, on the back side, we could see some light snow showers if precipitation continues through Sunday night and temperatures drop into the upper 20s. Either way, it will be more slushy and sloppy early next week as everything tries to melt.
