TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy, light showers possible. Lows in the upper 40s.
FRIDAY: Mostly dry early with heavy rain and storms increasing across Mid-Missouri by afternoon. Highs in the mid-50s. A few storms may produce gusty winds. Rain amounts range between 2-4". Flash flooding is possible through Friday night.
EXTENDED: As cold air moves in behind the cold front on Friday night, we'll see a change from rain to freezing rain in our northwestern counties by around 10PM. That change happens overnight from west to east, leaving a glaze to 0.25" of ice on the roads and surfaces into Saturday morning. Winds will gust up to 35 mph at times on Friday night, potentially causing power outages. The wintry mix eventually turns over to snow by mid-morning, giving us accumulation between 2-4", with locally higher amounts in our northern counties, likely north of Highway 24. Snow comes to an end by early Saturday evening, and temperatures dip into the upper teens with snow on the ground. That could allow for slick spots to continue into Sunday.
