Good afternoon! Clouds continue to spread over the area at noon.  Rain has begun over western Missouri, and it should expand later this afternoon and especially tonight.  Once rain begins where you are, temperatures will fall some.  Colder air will wrap into the system tonight from west to east.  It still looks as though the highest snow totals will be along the line from Nevada to Versailles, where 4-8” with locally higher totals is expected.  Temperatures will be at or just above freezing, but the intense snow rates will make up for this and roads will become quite slick over central Missouri. This change-over will occur well after dark tonight, but snow may continue at times into Tuesday.  In the Springfield area I expect 1-2” of snow, with little to no accumulation to the south and east.


Early Discussion:
Good morning!  Another storm is approaching the Ozarks and will bring both rain and snow.  Temperatures will be in the 40s and even 50s today before rain begins around noon or so.  The heaviest rain will be this evening and overnight, and then snow will become likely from west to east very late tonight into Tuesday. The track of the surface low will go from northern Texas through northern Arkansas and eventually into southern Illinois.  This favors heavy snow from portions of eastern Kansas through northwest Missouri, and will include parts of the KY3 Viewing area.  Specifically, I expect heavy snow from about Nevada to Versailles, where about 4-8" of snow could fall.  Lighter amounts are likely south, with 1-2" in Springfield. A few snow showers will continue into Tuesday and perhaps even Wednesday.  The rest of the week looks cold with highs in the 30s and perhaps low 40s.
