MID-MISSOURI - A snow and rain mix will blanket central Missouri through much of Wednesday before temperatures plummet for the end of the week. 

WEDNESDAY PRECIPITATION

Snow will continue through the evening.

Snow will push out around 11 PM to 1 AM. Clouds will decrease. Winds will increase. Temperatures will plummet and any wet slush leftover will freeze, hard.

ACCUMULATION

Overall, accumulations of 1-4" are expected for much of mid-Missouri. However, areas south of HWY 50, due to slightly warmer temps and more rain mixing in, may only receive a dusting to 1" on Wednesday evening.

Please note that more snow may fall than actually accumulates. This will be a heavy, wet snow. It will compact on the ground over time and will melt with any rain mixing in, plus temps will be just around freezing through much of the system. This will be a difficult system to truly measure how much snow falls.

COLDEST TEMPS THIS WINTER

Many folks have been begging for sunshine. The good news is, you'll get it for the end of this week on Thursday and Friday. The caveat? It brings the coldest temperatures of the 2019-2020 winter season with it.

Thursday morning will have lows near 10º and then only warm into the middle to upper 10s by the afternoon. It will also be windy and that will create a wind chill "feels like" between 0 and -10 on Thursday morning. Wind chills may barely make it above zero Thursday afternoon.

Thursday morning may produce the coldest temperature since November.

Friday will have an even colder actual temperature, around the middle single digits, but the wind should be calmer and that will produce wind chills of only 5 to -5. Temperatures should warm to near 30º on Friday afternoon. Expect plenty of sunshine this Valentine's Day. 

Friday morning may be the coldest morning since March 3, 2019.

TRAVEL IMPACTS

Wednesday evening: Snow will accumulate throughout central Missouri and roads will be slick.

Thursday morning: Any moisture (liquid, slush or snow) left on the road will flash freeze overnight as temps plummet to around 10º by sunrise Thursday creating icy conditions if not treated. It will also be windy and very cold (see above).
