Freezing rain, ice pellets possible early Thursday morning

There is a possibility of rain Wednesday night into Thursday morning as a warm front moves just to our south.

As temperatures fall to near or below the freezing mark at the surface, we could see some light freezing rain or ice pellets in the very early morning hours Thursday through late morning.

The atmospheric column just above the surface will be too warm to produce snow.

However, weather models have started to filter in more dry air to the lower and middle levels of atmosphere, which could evaporate this precipitation before it reaches the ground.

If enough moisture is present by Thursday morning, areas north of Highway 50 could see a glaze to about 0.05″ of ice by late morning. As temperatures begin to warm slightly through the day, this precipitation will turn to rain.

Roads could be slick Thursday morning for the work commute. To check Missouri road conditions, click here.

We dry slightly Thursday night, before rain chances increase overnight and last through the day Friday.

This weekend we dry out for Saturday and temperatures continue to warm into the upper 40s and lower 50s.
