Brief duration snow possible late tonight and Thursday morning. Total accumulation ranges from trace amounts to around an inch. Dangerous cold with wind chills near zero during that time. Areas Impacted: Southeastern Kansas and the Missouri Ozarks. Timing & Duration: Initial band of light snow may move into eastern Kansas and western central Missouri as early as 1200 AM (midnight) Thursday. Spreading east into the rest of the area from 1200 AM to 400 AM. Snow will exit the region from the west to east 6 am-noon Thursday but may linger over south-central Missouri until noon as a new snow band begins to develop. Impacts: With cold temperatures in place even light snow will easily accumulate as it falls. Some slick spots will be
possible where the snow packs down on the roadways which will be possible within any of the slightly heavier snow bands. Dangerous cold will also occur during this time. Certainty & Considerations: The system will be fast-moving limiting the duration of snow. The air mass will also be somewhat dry and this may also limit overall accumulation. However, where snow does occur, it will accumulate quickly with cold temperatures/cold ground. There is the potential for some small-scale bands of snow to develop. Confidence is low on precisely where any of these bands will develop and track.
