First Alert Forecast
Clouds will continue to roll in this evening and another “clipper” system will track out from the northwest. Some light snow will spread over the northern half of the state late tonight. This could even extend as far south as the Lake of the Ozarks for a brief time. A dusting to 1" is expected across the area, with more snow the farther NE you are in mid-Missouri. Low temperatures fall into the middle 20s by sunrise Friday and snow should be gone by then as well.
Clouds stick around for Friday, but with a few peeks of sunshine and temperatures reaching the middle 30s, some melting is possible on Friday afternoon. Then, buckle up for a cold night as temperatures drop into the single digits by Saturday morning. Wind chills will be in the negative single digits.
Saturday will still be mostly cloudy and cold as highs struggle to reach the middle 20s. Only a slight chance for a few flurries.
Sunday still hasn't made up it's mind yet. At this point, most of the moisture looks to be NE of us, however, we will likely catch the edge of the system and bring at least a dusting to the area. Moreover, with temperatures possibly in the middle 30s we could be dealing with some freezing rain in parts of the area. There is still plenty of time for this system to change as it develops. Stay tuned as we continue to track it.
A mid-February heat wave is on the way for next week.
