Snow showers will continue through the day on Tuesday. Accumulating snowfall is still likely in some areas, mainly along and north of I-70. There will be a drastic cutoff between accumulating snow and mainly rain farther to the south near I-44. Snowfall amounts of 4-8″+ remain possible for central and northern Mid-Missouri with lesser amounts to the south.The track of the storm is still uncertain, so continue to check back for the latest updates.***ORIGINAL STORY***Our next winter storm is on the way to Mid-Missouri Monday and Tuesday. Forecast models have continued to shift the storm farther to the south and slower. Precipitation will likely begin as rain by midday and continue through the evening hours. Colder air will move in on the backside of the storm, changing the rain to a rain-snow mix in central and northern sections of Mid-Missouri by Monday late night and then all snow by Tuesday morning. Heavy snow is possible overnight with snowfall rates of 1-2″ per hour likely along and north of I-70. Areas of Mid-Missouri that see those heavier bands of snow could see significant snowfall totals of 6-10″. Periods of minor, light snow will be possible through Tuesday afternoon and even on Wednesday as the storm system exits to the east. While the models are coming into agreement on the track of this storm, a northward/southward shift in the track or a delayed arrival of cold air could lead to very different results as far as rain or snow amounts are concerned. We will continuously update the forecast throughout the weekend to pinpoint timing as well as precipitation types and amounts.
