Weather Alert Day: Accumulating snow on Friday, road impacts possible


The Winter Weather Advisory has been greatly expanded across the majority of Mid-MO.

Rain will continue to transition to snow this afternoon further and further southward. Nearly all of Mid-MO will see snowfall today which could make roads slushy.


The ABC 17 Stormtrack Weather Team has issued a Weather Alert Day for the potential of accumulating snow and slick roads into late Friday afternoon.

A low pressure system moving over the Midwest will bring dropping temperatures and accumulating snowfall which could make travel tricky.


Snow totals will be in the 1-3" range for communities along the I-70 corridor and north, while points south could pick up a dusting to 1". Road impacts will likely be limited for those south of the Missouri River where snowfall rates will be lighter. Isolated 4" spots will be possible from a small zone from Paris to Mexico to Vandalia.

Roads could be slick Friday night if left untreated. Overnight lows will drop into the upper teens to around 20 by Saturday morning. Make sure to download the ABC 17 Stormtrack Weather App to keep an eye on the radar Friday and for any closings or delays that may come in.
