The National Weather Service issues a variety of Winter Weather Advisories for the state.
Central Missouri; including Audrain, Boone, Callaway, Cole, Crawford, Gasconade, Moniteau, Montgomery, and Osage Counties, are under the advisory now through 6 p.m. Friday. The area can expect mixed precipitation becoming all snow by this evening, with two to four inches of accumulation.
Franklin County is also under the advisory now through 6 tomorrow night. While that area can also expect mixed precipitation turning to all snow; accumulations are expected to be slightly less.
The advisory kicks in at 3 this afternoon for areas in north central Missouri; including Howard, Randolph, and Saline Counties. Snow is expected there, with two to four inches predicted. That advisory also extends through Friday night.
The advisory goes into effect at 9 o’clock tonight for those living in Cooper and Pettis Counties. Two to four inches of snow are expected through Friday evening.
And the advisories get a little tricky for the Lake and Fort Leonard Wood area. They’re under two separate advisories, including the counties of Benton, Camden, Dallas, Dent, Hickory, Laclede, Maries, Miller, Morgan, Phelps, and Pulaski. The first Winter Weather Advisory begins at noon today with predicted wet snow accumulations of up to one inch. A second Winter Weather Advisory has been issued, starting at 9 p.m. tonight, lasting through noon Friday. That advisory calls for mixed precipitation, with up to 3 inches of snow and a light ice glaze.
