I hope everyone is enjoying your week so far and getting back into the swing of work after the holidays. Well for the season we are sitting at a whopping 1/2″ of snow. That is almost funny. We have a long way to go to hit our average of 12″ per season. We are going to get a band over light snow tonight into the morning hours. This won’t amount to much but could give us a few slick spots on the roads. I think most of this will be out of here by 9am. Here is what I am expecting. Most of us a dusting to 1/2″ or so. This is a very weak wave but with it being so cold, it could be a little slick. Heaviest amounts of 1-2″ will be around Iola, Ft. Scott, Nevada and Stockton Lake. Also east near Springfield. For the Joplin metro a dusting on the south side to 1/2″ on the north side of the metro.
But super cold. Wind chills around zero in the morning and they don’t climb much through the day.
Temps will struggle to get into the lower 20s for highs on Thursday.
We do start to warm up a bit on Friday, but still cold.
Rain chances return on Saturday with highs back into the 40s.
Check out the long range forecast below.
