After a very mild couple of days around Mid-Missouri, we are tracking the potential for light accumulating snow as much colder air moves into the area by the end of the week.
A cold front will sweep across the area today, bringing a chance for a few showers and temperatures back into the 40s. The associated low pressure system to our north will send more moisture in our direction by Friday.
Light to moderate snow showers will move into Mid-Missouri by mid-morning Friday and continue through the early evening as low pressure rotates east. With temperatures making it to the low to mid-30s Friday and road temperatures above freezing, accumulation will be light. A dusting to 1" is expected for much of the area, with isolated 2-3" amounts possible where we have steadier bands of snow.
Gusty winds will still be present on Friday, with northwest winds getting up to 25-30 mph. With air temperatures in the low to mid-30s, that will bring wind chills down into the upper teens to around 20 during the day, with mid-teens expected by Saturday morning.
Roads could be slushy in some spots Saturday, especially in areas that are less traveled or untreated. Give yourself extra time as you head out the door for the weekend.
