MONDAY: With widespread morning showers we are going to see the potential for a slow going morning commute. As temperatures are below freezing north of I-70, some areas may see some slick spots. Rain continues through the day Monday as temperatures will slowly warm to above freezing by mid to late morning. This will help improve road conditions for areas that did see some ice accumulation early. However, areas north of HWY 24 will likely stay at freezing and roads will continue to be slick with some snow, sleet and freezing rain possible through the day. Highs will range from the upper 30s at the Lake of the Ozarks to near freezing near HWY 36.
TONIGHT: Scattered showers continue through the early evening, but begin to break up tonight as they pull to the east. Clouds hang around through the night as temperatures drop towards freezing. Isolated snow showers can’t be ruled out through the morning.
EXTENDED: As that cold air moves in, we could see a transition to snow with minor accumulation possible before ending early Tuesday morning. Colder air moves in quickly with the help of wind gusts around 30-35 mph throughout the day on Tuesday and temperatures in the 30s, dropping to the low 20s Tuesday night. Winds look to turn out of the south on Wednesday, keeping the bulk of the cold air out of the region, helping temperatures into the upper 40s to low 50s Wednesday and upper 50s Thursday, making for a nice warm up. Another storm system moves in Thursday bringing a chance of rain late Thursday followed by colder air and a chance of light snow early Friday. Temperatures will be much colder by Friday afternoon, in the low to mid 30s and will only reach near 30 this weekend. Watch ABC 17 News for the latest forecast and check back here for updates.
