First Alert Forecast

WEDNESDAY

Morning: Dry and cloudy with all precipitation staying well to the west over the Kansas City area with temperatures in the middle 20s.

Midday-Late Afternoon: Light snow and freezing rain will begin to develop and become widespread over central Missouri around noon and will continue through the afternoon. Roads could start to see slick spots developing at the onset of the precipitation. There is a high amount of uncertainly with this system This is due to air temperatures from the ground to 5,000ft hovering +/- 1 degree from the 32 degree freezing temperature. This means we do not know the full extent of what Wednesday's impacts will be until we have full confidence in what air temperatures.Regardless, this round of precipitation will be occurring during school dismissals and the evening commutes from work. Caution should be taken on roads given expected conditions.

Evening-Overnight: Precipitation will transition to all snowfall and accumulation is expected. Possible accumulations of around 1" are likely. Higher amounts of up to 2-3" may be possible. Temperatures will be in the range of the lower 30s. Slushy and slick spots are expected.

THURSDAY

This system looks to continue through Thursday, and precipitation should start as snow and a wintry mix through the day, but transition to a cold rain by the afternoon. We will need to watch temperatures closely as a shift of only 1° can change precipitation types and therefor change impacts.

Slick spots will be possible in the morning, but conditions should improve through the day as assuming temperatures warm into the middle 30s and we see just rainfall.

Precipitation types will once again transition to snowfall as a cold front passes Thursday allowing colder air to return aloft. This changeover to snow will occur late Thursday evening and last through the night

FRIDAY

Day three of this very complicated storm system will likely start as snow and accumulation is likely. Those accumulations are very uncertain right now, but are not expected to exceed more than 2-3". Snow will last through at least midday as highs warm into the range of 31 to 35 degrees. This warm could allow for a change over to mixed precipitation once again.

SATURDAY

Mostly cloudy with flurries possible in the morning . Highs in the upper 30s.

SUNDAY

Partly sunny. Highs in the lower 40s.

MONDAY

Partly sunny. Highs in the middle 40s.

TUESDAY

Mostly Cloudy with highs in the lower 50s.
