More Snow Possible in the Ozarks Today

A winter weather advisory is in effect from noon today until 3 am tomorrow.  Ryan Kardell is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Springfield.

"There is a band of snow that we're expecting to form up from west to east later this afternoon into the overnight.  Snow accumulations could range anywhere from a dusting to two inches in some places with this narrow band of wintry precipitation," he said.

He says areas along the I-44 corridor should expect to see some snow.

The snow that falls today and that's already on the ground should stick around awhile.  Temperatures aren't expected to get above freezing until Friday. 

Normal temperatures for this time of year, according to Kardell, are in the mid to upper 40s.

"We have been well above normal for awhile now.  It's just been a very cold pattern.  We've had these air masses that break loose from the northern part of the continent up in Canada and come down in the central part of the United States.  That's basically what we've been dealing with here with these cold temperatures.  That just keeps getting reinforced by continuous shots of cold air from the north," he said.

Kardell says it looks like temperatures will be cold enough today and tonight that we shouldn't have to worry about freezing rain or drizzle.
