A storm system is expected to move into the Ozarks tomorrow night bringing with it accumulating snow and cold temperatures.  Steve Lindenberg is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Springfield.

"It will bring snowfall pretty much to the entire area, and it looks like at this time areas of the eastern Ozarks will receive the most snow where six to eight inches could occur over toward Phelps and Dent Counties.  Here in the Springfield area probably four to six inches," he said. 

According to Lindenberg, far western Missouri could get two to three inches.

Temperatures Sunday and Monday night will be in the single digits to below zero with a high Monday only around six.

Lindenberg says wind chills will range from 18 to 25 below zero Sunday night.
