Insider Blog: Rain and light snow accumulation possible late Saturday

The Stormtrack Weather Team is tracking the potential of rain changing to snow as low pressure moves in from the southwest Saturday evening.

Temperatures on Saturday will top out in the lower 40s, about 10 degrees above freezing. Light showers start to move in from the west by late afternoon or early evening, gradually changing over to wet snow as temperatures drop to near the freezing mark through the evening.

The most favorable location for accumulation will be across the northern tier of Missouri where we'll cool down more quickly on Saturday evening. This is where we could see a dusting to 2" of snow and road temperatures become a bit cooler versus farther south.

Areas near the Lake of the Ozarks, I-44, and southern Missouri will likely have to deal with a cold or slushy rain with little to no accumulation. Road temperatures look to stay above freezing through the entire event in this zone.

Much of Mid-Missouri will fall in the dusting to 1" zone for snowfall accumulation, with snow showers moving in after sunset. Roads will be wet through Sunday evening, with some slick spots possible on ramps, bridges, and overpasses, along with neighborhood roads or city streets.

Major impacts are not expected, but slower road conditions are likely into Sunday morning with isolated slick spots. Temperatures are expected to warm above freezing to the upper 30s to low 40s on Sunday, helping bring road temperatures up.

To check on any closings or delays, make sure to have the ABC 17 News app, along with the Stormtrack Weather app to keep an eye on when snow moves out on Sunday.
