Even though the spring season has just begun...a snow storm will affect the region today as colder than normal temperatures remain entrenched over the area. Will see precipitation develop north of a warm front across southern Missouri by midday today. The best chances of snow will be tonight...before tapering off by Friday morning. As for precipitation type...at this time it looks to be all snow in our area...while further to the southwest near Springfield a mix of rain and snow is possible at times. There will be a very sharp cutoff from snow to no snow accumulation with this storm. At this time the best chances for accumulating snows will be southwest of a Jefferson City to Farmington line. One to two inches of snow is possible over the eastern Ozarks with higher amounts further to the west over southwestern Missouri. Beyond that another snow storm to affect the region Saturday night through Sunday. Will see rain develop over region Saturday afternoon...before cha! nging over to all snow Saturday evening. This storm may produce heavy snow...but the location of the heaviest snow band is hard to pin down at this time. Be sure to check back frequently for updates on this active weather pattern.
