***WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR GASCONADE, MARIES, MONTGOMERY, PHELPS & PULASKI COUNTIES FROM 4 PM THIS AFTERNOON UNTIL 6 PM THURSDAY***
THIS AFTERNOON: Even with full sunshine, many places in the low thirties to kick off the afternoon. We’ll see increasing clouds, and even a few snow showers along I-44 into mid-afternoon. Although, most of us are dry this evening. Temps don’t budge all too much so you’ll need the jacket if you’re heading out in the next couple of hours.
TONIGHT: Light snow is expected to increase near I-44, ahead of our next storm system that will bring accumulation to parts of the region. There will be clear skies to the northwest, with temperatures dipping into the upper teens tonight, with mostly cloudy skies to the southeast and temperatures holding into the mid 20s. Areas as far north and west as Hwy 54 could see some light snow tonight, but the greatest chance exists near I-44.
EXTENDED: There will be a sharp cutoff in snowfall totals Thursday with a dusting expected near Hwy 54 approaching 2 inches near I-44. Localized heavier amounts are possible, but will likely only exist near I-44 and eastward. Heaviest snow with this system will occur across far eastern Missouri, where snowfall totals could top out near 6 inches of snow. Temperatures will rise Thursday but only reaching near 40 at best, which is still chilly for mid-November. Friday looks to be the nicest day of the week, as we squeeze out some 50s across the region, before another shot of cold air knocks us back into the 30s by Sunday. We are watching for possible light snow Saturday night which could produce minor accumulation into Sunday morning.
