After the winter storm that brought snow, sleet and freezing rain to much of the state today diminishes, Missourians will not have much of a break from winter precipitation.
Meteorologist Andy Foster with the National Weather Service in Springfield says two storms are expected to hit Missouri in the coming week.
“Looks like we’ll see a potential winter storm impacting the region beginning Monday night into Tuesday and potentially another winter storm effecting the area as we go into late week … Friday into Saturday.”
Foster says it isn’t clear what those storms will do and where.
“At this point there is so much uncertainty on exact track and strength it is hard to say as far as exact accumulations, but right now we’d say just prepare for a potential winter storm with a variety of winter-type precipitation with either of those storms.”
He says both systems show potential to have a region-wide impact.
“These both could be larger winter storms that will have a variety of winter weather that will impact a large area, so if you have travel plans next week make sure you get the latest forecast.
