A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for all of Mid-Missouri for our next storm system forecast to bring snow on Tuesday.
The advisory is in effect until midnight Wednesday morning for areas along Highway 65, and through 6AM for areas further east.
Snow has started to filter into Mid-Missouri in a somewhat narrow band that encompasses the length of Highway 63 and surrounding areas. Light snow is expected to fill in for areas along Highway 65 by 2-3 PM and spread east through the afternoon.
There will be a narrow window for sleet mixed with snow south of Highway 54 through late afternoon Tuesday, with a changeover to all snow by evening.
Snow exits from west to east mainly after midnight Wednesday morning, leaving us with warmer temperatures for Wednesday afternoon.
The highest snow totals are expected north of I-70, with 4-5″ possible in these areas especially for Audrain, Monroe, Randolph, Monroe, and Macon counties. Columbia will likely be on the lower end, with about 4″ possible.
3-4″ is expected along the I-70 corridor, including Jefferson City. Areas along Highway 50 could see 2-3″ of snow by late Tuesday night.
South of Highway 50 including the Lake of the Ozarks will be in the 1-2″ range, with afternoon sleet accounted for in that range.
