Tonight: Northwest winds will begin to pick up this evening behind the cold front and light snow chances(50-70%) will begin to push into central Missouri as the upper level wave begins to move in. The bulk of the accumulating snow will remain well to the north and east of the local area. We can expect a few snow flurries to occur this evening and
overnight, but should not be any impact. Lows tonight should dip into the single digits to teens above zero with wind chills in the single digits below zero to around -12.
Friday: The light snow/flurries should come to an end by sunrise on Friday as the jet streak pushes into the TN/OH valley region. Surface high will continue to push into the area with some gusty northwest winds continuing during the day. It will be kind of a
raw day with highs in the teens to low 20s and wind chill values only in the single digits below zero to single digits above zero. The cold air mass will continue pushing into the area Friday night and eventually move overhead on Saturday. This will continue the cold temperatures and wind chills through Saturday. Lows on Friday night will be in the 0 to 5 above range and highs on Saturday in the teens to mid 20s.
A wind chill advisory is in effect from Midnight tonight through noon on Saturday.
