A strong storm system is expected to affect Mid-Missouri Wednesday night into Thursday but the exact path is still uncertain. There are 3 different paths showing up on our forecast models and each one would provide us with a different outcome. At this time, a path just north of I-44 looks most likely which would result in little to no accumulating snow in Mid-MO. Below are the 3 possible tracks which have corresponding graphics labeled Track #1, Track #2 and Track #3 below.Track #1 shows the surface low tracking near I-44. Rain would change to snow late Wednesday night, ending early Thursday morning with less than 2 inch accumulation in Mid-Missouri while heavier amounts of over 4 inches would be possible in northern Missouri and Iowa. Track #2 is the less likely path which would shift the heaviest snow band southeast, bringing higher amounts of snow to parts of Mid-Missouri with most of the precipitation falling as snow rather than rain. Track #3 would give Mid-Missouri mostly rain with very little, if any snow and no accumulation. The heaviest snow would stay well north and west of Missouri and strong storms would be possible in southeastern Missouri and the Mississippi valley.The Stormtrack weather team will continue to watch the trends on forecast models and will have updates the next few days.
