Roads across northern Missouri are already covered or partly covered as a winter storm has brought snow, ice and cooler temperatures to parts of the state today.
The National Weather Service says the cold front that brought that precipitation has stalled in southern Missouri. Snow is expected to continue this afternoon north of Interstate 70 with a mix of snow and some sleet farther south.
Meteorologist Pam Murray says the greater event will happen overnight through tomorrow morning.
“Higher snowfall amounts will remain across northern Missouri. We’re generally looking at 4 to 6 inches across that area with locally higher amounts. Generally along and south of I-70 you’ll be looking at anywhere from 2 to 4 inches.”
Murray says there could also be some ice accumulation overnight.
“We’re seeing areas of freezing rain and drizzle develop across southeast Kansas and portions of southeast Missouri and we’re expecting that to move north, looking at maybe a tenth- to a quarter-inch of ice across south and central Missouri.”
