Another round of winter weather is moving through the state Friday, and temperatures right at and above freezing later today means there’s a good chance of ice as temperatures drop again later on.
Meteorologist Andy Boxell with the National Weather Service in Springfield says the storm will bring mostly just rain to the Ozarks, which will turn into sleet and snow for Central and northern Missouri by Friday night.
The National Weather Service is calling for anywhere from one to five inches of sleet and snow throughout much of Missouri, with the northeast and north central part of Missouri hardest hit. Areas along Interstate 70 could see one to three inches … areas near Mexico and Moberly, up into Illinois could see more than five inches of snow by Saturday morning.
Boxell says with temperatures being in flux throughout much of the state, it’s important to pay attention to the weather forecasts, which could change as conditions develop.
