Michele Skalicky talks with a National Weather Service meteorologist about the winter mix that's expected today.
A winter weather advisory is in effect from 9 to 6 today in Southern Missouri and until noon in Northern Arkansas. Meteorologist Brian Barjenbruch with the National Weather Service in Springfield, explains what we can expect.
By late morning today we should start to get into a little bit of freezing drizzle in the Springfield area and especially areas to the southeast of Springfield where it will start a little bit sooner. It may mix with a few snowflakes at times, but generally we're looking at freezing drizzle, which could make the roadways slippery, especially on bridges and other elevated surfaces."
Barjenbruch says the precipitation could continue throughout the day and overnight tonight. The good new is: for a few hours this afternoon, temperatures are expected to rise above the freezing mark, and we'll have warmer temperatures for Christmas Day.
"We could actually see temperatures in the mid 40s, which will be nice unless you were hoping for a white Christmas."
Barjenbruch says Christmas Eve into Christmas Day should be dry. The precipitation is expected to end tomorrow morning.
