SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The National Weather Service upgraded the Winter Storm Watch to a Winter Storm Warning for Wednesday night and Thursday. The warning for snow, sleet and freezing rain will be in effect from 6 p.m. Wednesday to 6 p.m. Thursday. You can track the latest watches and warnings here.
Here's the forecast from Brandon Beck on Wednesday morning:
Cloud cover will quickly increase today, and within east wind are temperatures will stay in the thirties. There is a large area of precipitation moving northeast across Oklahoma and Texas. However our very dry air will likely fight this off with most locations staying dry through the day.
The exception may be Northwest Arkansas and extreme southwest Missouri, where a few showers will occur later this afternoon. Lift will increase later on this evening with a wintry mix overspreading at least western Missouri and Arkansas later tonight. I think the amounts will be relatively light, but enough to make roadways slick by Thursday morning.
