Most of the snow is done.  Only a few snow showers and flurries will be possible tonight.  The wind will continue to blow the snow around.  Lows will be in the mid to lower 20's with wind chills in the teens. Monday will still be a very cold day for late March.  Highs will only be in the 30's with scattered flurries throughout the day. Roads shouldn't be impacted too much by the snow showers tomorrow.  There could be a little minor accumulation on grassy surfaces up to an inch before it starts to melt.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- All eyes are on the radar this afternoon as rain showers push into southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas. Soon we will see a transition from rain to snow across parts of the Ozarks. As a result the NWS has issued a Winter Weather Advisory that will be in effect through tomorrow morning. Notice the counties below that are under the advisory are mainly south of I-44.   Here is a look at what we can expect from this system. Temperatures initially will remain well above freezing, keeping all precip.

Most schools in southwest Missouri called off classes Thursday. That included Ozarks Technical Community College, a commuter school.       But colleges and universities with good old-fashioned dorms decided to hold classes Thursday despite the moans and groans of students who didn't feel like slogging through the snow to catch their morning classes. "A lot of teachers are cancelling class anyway so its just kinda pointless and theres no one in class anyway a lot of students don't come to class because its so cold and it's difficult to get here.

What a crazy day!  You can say you got to experience history today.  We set the record for the latest measurable snow in Springfield.  The previous record was May 2, 1929.  A few more snow bands will continue this morning.  It will be hard to accumulate much more snow with temperatures just above freezing but a little more is possible on top of what snow is out there.  Near midday the snow will start to transition to rain.  Areas to the east of...

Of course, we couldn't escape winter without at least some snow.  The bulk of the snow will be done by noon.  Later this afternoon some more snow showers will be possible along with some wintry mix for areas south of highway 60.  In all, accumulations will generally range 1" to 2" but a few places could hit 3".  Tonight some freezing drizzle will be possible with lows in the upper 20's.  This snow won't last long.  By Tuesday highs will be in...

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- More wintry weather is on the way this weekend. It looks like most areas will start Saturday off on a dry note, before turning rainy later Saturday night. That rain will turn into snow by Sunday. Highs will still make it into the 40s on Saturday.   This system looks to have the greatest impacts on the northern part of the Ozarks. A winter storm watch is in effect for areas near the Lake of the Ozarks.   Here is a look at the rain by 7pm Saturday night.

Hopefully this will be the last winter day until next winter.  The snow showers will be off and on today.  Very minor accumulations are expected in the dusting to 1" at most range.  Highs will stay in the 30's with wind chills in the teens and 20's. This disturbance is still to our north.  As it gets closer there will be more widespread snow showers.  The snow may appear bad but it will only be brief. Highs should top out in the mid 30's so in theory the roads will just be wet.  I'm sure there will still be a few slick spots during rush hour so use extra caution.

It was nice to melt a lot of the snow today.  Too bad more is on the way for Sunday.  A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for most areas north or I-44 and a Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for areas along and south of I-44.  This warning/advisory goes from Midnight until 7pm. This evening there will only be scattered showers.  Tonight it will start to change over to snow and eventually to all snow. The timing of the snow will be quicker for areas to the west and north and slower for the south and east.  Here is the timing for the Springfield area.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo -- The spring snow caught drivers off guard during Friday's morning rush. Springfield Police say weather contributed to 90% of traffic incidents; they even entered Emergency Status at one point, and some complained about *not* seeing snow plows out there. But that's not all the way true. Some plows and salt trucks did make a couple rounds this morning, but it's May 3rd - Public Works packed up most of its fleet back in April. Engineers take off the plows and convert those vehicles into plows and turn into dumptrucks for the summer.

Some outdoor events in Sprnigfield are switching gears in the wake of this unexpected snow but not every venue has the option of taking things indoors.   When Mother Nature gives you snow, make snowcones.   "I's a fantastic spring day," a man tells us, walking in downtown Springfield bundled up in his winter coat.   Unwavering optimist Rachel Wise and 60 of her closest friends and family will be making history.   "It's kind of cool it hasn't snowed like this in 84 years so it's a memorable weekend," Rachel says, laughing.

I wish this forecast wasn't true but it is.  The warm weather is gone for several days.  The cold front has moved through and much cooler air is moving in. Highs will be in the morning in the 50's for most of us and a few 60's to the east.  Temperatures will then fall into the 40's.  Scattered showers and maybe a thunderstorm is possible anytime during the day.  Tonight things get a little interesting.  Lows will be in the mid to lower 30's. ...

Overcast and foggy conditions were around many parts of the Ozarks this afternoon. At one point visibility near Rolla was down to .25 of a mile.   A cold front was plunging southeast this afternoon and temperatures are tumbling behind the front. Look at the temperature contrast this afternoon.   Areas of rain and drizzle will continue and even some snow will mix in later tonight as shown below. No accumulation is expected but don't be surprised that some white stuff may be falling overnight.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Health officials say it made them physically sick.  Now a man from Springfield prays he doesn't get sick, too.  John Snow is one of at least 7,000 people treated by a dentist in Tulsa, Okla., who is accused of possibly passing on deadly diseases to his patients.   Unsterilized equipment is just one of many infractions that state officials discovered when they inspected his office. All these patients need to get tested, according to the Oklahoma Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  That's what Snow did this week.

Today, will be cooler than the temps we had over the weekend. Highs will push to the mid 50s under a mix of sun and clouds. A brisk northerly wind will make if feel like the upper 40s for much of the afternoon. As we head into the late evening, some rain from the south will work it's way up to the Ozarks. It'll be light to start and mainly affect areas towards our south and west. About 0.5 to 0.75" are expected.
