Snow is Likely in the Ozarks

Get out your snow shovels and ice scrapers. The National Weather Service is forecasting snow for Southern Missouri. KSMU's Michele Skalicky has more...

Another round of winter weather is headed our way. Andy Foster, meteorologist with the National Weather Service Office in Springfield, says a mixture of freezing rain, sleet and snow could develop as early as tomorrow afternoon. Heavy snow is expected to begin falling tomorrow night and continue into Friday...

"We expect anywhere from six to ten inches of snowfall at this time. Of course, with any winter storm, those accumulations could vary, and the forecast will certainly get fine tuned as we get closer to the storm."

While Foster says there’s still uncertainty about what this winter storm will do, several inches of snow looks pretty likely over a good portion of Southern Missouri.Friday is going to be cold, and the wind could be a problem...

"As this system pulls away, north winds will increase with gusts near 25 mph, so that will certainly add an additional hazard, not only due to the visibility and blowing snow but also wind chills that will develop as you go into Friday, Friday night."

Cold temperatures will hang around for several days, so any snowfall will stick around awhile.Foster says there could be another chance for winter precipitation early next week.
