A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for all of northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas until early Wednesday morning as a strong storm system is pushing through. Rain will eventually transition to a wintry mix and then to all snow this evening. This will lead to slick roads across the area tonight into Wednesday morning.
A cold front has now passed through the region, which is now ushering in much colder air. Winds will switch up to the northwest behind the front, gusting up to 25-30 mph. Temperatures will fall quickly from the 30s into the teens by Wednesday morning. Snow accumulations will range around 1-3 inches, with the most falling in our northern counties. If the warmer air sticks around longer, less accumulations are possible and if the colder air moves in sooner, more accumulations are possible. As temperatures continue to drop, any water that is on the roadways will likely freeze leading to slick roads overnight. Drivers should travel with caution, especially tonight into Wednesday morning.
Behind this system and for the rest of the week, there is the return of some sunshine with clouds. Temperatures will also be on the decline by the weekend in the middle 20s to lower 30s. We'll have a very slight chance of light snow by Saturday.
