Snow Could Fall in the Ozarks this Weekend

Michele Skalicky

The Ozarks could see some wintery precipitation over the weekend.

National Weather Service meteorologist Steve Lindenberg said we’ll see light rain first tonight.  As colder air moves in, that precipitation is expected to change over to snow.

"With the heaviest along the I-44 corridor up toward Rolla where they could see three or four inches.  A little bit less as you head down toward Springfield with maybe one to two inches," he said.

He said they’re holding off on issuing any advisories because the track of the storm could change.  But he expects a winter weather advisory to be issued later today.

He said most accumulating snow will be during the daytime hours.  And with temperatures at or above freezing, roadways are expected to stay relatively clear.
