Thursday won’t be much warmer.
Light snow is moving across the state this morning.
WATERLOO -The National Weather Service said freezing rain and drizzle will persist in the area until about noon Tuesday. In other words – it might be slick out there this morning, but by this afternoon we’ll be completely dry. If the temperatures stay below 32 degrees until Friday afternoon, then it could be a different story. If you must travel, plan on hard conditions. Not only will there be spots of ice, but blowing snow could reduce visibility at times.
Freezing rain, sleet and snow will continue overnight.
Hikers and campers should be prepared for a change to colder weather, blustery winds and snow.
A Winter Weather Advisory has been posted for areas north of a Berryville, AR, to Eminence, MO, line through 10am Wednesday.
Thursday will be a much cooler day with high temperatures dropping almost 30 degrees from what they are expected to be Wednesday. The afternoon commute will be impacted. If you live south of Kansas City, then the precipitation will begin between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m.
A winter weather advisory was issued from 6 p.m. Tuesday to 6 p.m. Wednesday.
Wednesday will remain cold and cloudy with patchy freezing drizzle or drizzle early.
Our next disturbance will move in just after midnight and we can expect areas of freezing rain. Total snow accumulations of 3 to 4 inches, with localized 5 inch totals.
The risk for snow and ice accumulation is considered limited, according to the weather service.
More rain will develop Friday and again on Saturday. Almost all local school districts and private schools are taking the day off today because of risky road conditions.
