Things look to start tapering off toward this afternoon from west to east. Road conditions should start to improve slowly after that.

Snow will come to an end from west to east this afternoon.

Synopsis:

Winter Weather Advisory has been extended until 6:00 pm tonight in Boone, Cole, and Callaway Counties

An area of low pressure to our south is producing ongoing precipitation that is pushing into Mid-Missouri, and bringing snow showers to the region today. Snow accumulations are likely for parts of the area, making for a slower morning commute for some. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for areas along and south of I-70 until noon.

Timing/Impacts:

Steady snowfall is expected to stay along and south of I-70, but there could be light snow accumulations for Columbia and points just north of the interstate through the morning commute. Snow is expected to come to an end by mid-late afternoon.

Snow amounts will be highest along and south of Highway 50, with those locations picking up between 1-2" of accumulation. Areas north will likely see a dusting to an inch, including Columbia. Since temperatures will be fairly warm, near freezing, this snow will be heavier and make roads slushy and slick for the morning.

Roads will likely improve toward evening as crews continue to treat the roads and snow comes to an end, but use caution as temperatures remain below freezing going into Thursday morning. Stay with ABC 17 News and Stormtrack Weather for the latest updates to the forecast.
