Hallie’s Hints: Winter Storm Watch

Hope you’ve enjoyed the nice mild weather that we’ve seen lately. January is going out like a lamb and we’re entering February as a lion! Let’s talk about today first. We have a few light rain showers north of the metro this morning.


Don’t be surprised if you see a sprinkle or two this morning, but by later on this afternoon we will be done with any threat of rain. In fact, it’s going to be another above average day with highs in the upper 40s to lower 50s. The big difference between yesterday and today will be the gusty winds out of the northwest. Grab your heavy jacket!


A storm system is finally moving on shore out west this morning. This low pressure system will bring the chance for accumulating snow to the Midwest as we head into the work week.


A WINTER STORM WATCH has been issued for extreme northwest Missouri Monday evening through Wednesday morning. Locations north of Highway 36 will have the best chance of seeing accumulating snowfall.


Let’s break this down for you hour-by-hour. Rain will be possible Monday evening with a wintry mix possible north.


We’ll likely see rain in the metro through the day on Tuesday with snow in northwest Missouri.


As the colder air moves in, rain could briefly transition over to snow in the metro Tuesday night.


Here is a look at possible snow accumulation through Tuesday night.


The track of this system could change over the next 48 hours. Stay with the StormTrack5 Weather Team for the latest on this winter storm system.
