It looks to be another cold day across Mid-Missouri with temperatures in the mid-20s.
Snow whips through the area but the cold is not in as big a hurry to leave. The northeastern plains will see some rain / snow mixed showers through the evening that will clear out by midnight. Expect areas of poor driving conditions early Monday. Slick roads may be a problem for the morning commute, if you have to work on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Unsafe wind chills are possible by Tuesday morning, ranging from 10 to 20 below zero.
Highs Monday expected to be single digits above and below zero. Highs by Tuesday afternoon will only reach the mid to upper single digits in most areas. Temperatures will be back in the 40s and 50s by Wednesday.
While the risk right now for snow and ice across the region next Wednesday is low, keep a check of the latest forecast in the event of any significant changes.
Cold Weather Continues, Slick Roads Still a Concern
Another shot of cold air will blow our tonight into Saturday but other than a random flurry or two, we should be snow-free. Sunday with an inch or less of accumulation in the metro and slightly higher amounts to the southwest (see map below).
The chill was driven by strong north winds that not only produced sporadic flurries, but generated 8- to 14-foot-high waves on Lake Michigan that caused some shoreline flooding.
Today: Morning clouds, becoming mostly sunny by afternoon. Snow chance remains 30 percent, Klein said. Low around 2. Northerly wind 5 to 15mph. However, we've still got a shot at snow showers or a period of light snow in that time frame.
The chance of snow across the state Tuesday is 30 percent, with northern DE having its chance at precipitation in the afternoon and the southern side catching up in the evening, Klein said. Wind: N 10-20. Low: 1.
