Suchan Says: Snow Gradually Moving In


Snow moving southeast into the area tonight

The first snowflakes are flying in northwestern Missouri and heading southeast tonight.  This remains a quick hitting dry, powdery snow with much of the snow quickly moving south and out of the area after sunrise.

I still see enough snow to produce travel impacts especially where an inch or more of snow falls.  This combined with arctic cold air moving in Sunday morning will certainly add to the slick travel potential.  Roads should be a little better in the afternoon under mostly sunny skies despite the arctic cold in place.

This will be the type of snow that you can broom off your deck or sidewalk.


Snow moving in overnight


Snow moving out early Sunday morning


Forecast Snow Amounts


Arctic air mass moving south!


Frigid Sunday… will feel like it’s -5 to -15 when you factor in the wind

Next chance of snow is Tuesday and a little sleet could mix in.  This system has the potential to drop at least 1″ of snow but some areas could see 3″ or 4″ of snow especially if sleet is kept to a minimum.  Computer models still vary quite a bit on forecast amounts.  I prefer a broad 1″ to 4″ forecast right now but another 24 hours of modeling should help pin down amounts and where with a bit more confidence.
