Winter Storm Headed for the Ozarks

Michele Skalicky

A winter storm is expected to dump a significant amount of snow on the Ozarks tonight and into tomorrow.  A winter storm warning is in effect until 3 pm Monday. According to the National Weather Service, snow is expected to develop across central Missouri early in the evening with snow moving across much of the southern and central parts of the state after dark.  Several localized bands of heavy snow can be expected during the overnight hours.  According to the NWS, “while the exact location of these bands is very difficult to predict, they appear most likely to occur across southern Missouri.”

Storm totals are expected to vary considerably across the area.  The National Weather Service is predicting five to seven inches in west central and central Missouri with higher amounts of six to eight inches in southern Missouri.  Localized amounts of between eight and ten inches are possible in areas where the heaviest bands of snow develop.

Snow is expected to taper off late tomorrow morning or early afternoon.
