SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The biggest winter storm thus far this season may be headed for the Ozarks. I am keeping a close eye on a potent storm system that could bring all types of precipitation to the Ozarks late Wednesday night into Thursday. A Winter Storm Watch has already been issued for much of Nebraska and Kansas as you can see below.     A system that is currently diving down from the Gulf of Alaska will come on shore the west coast tomorrow morning and then proceed across the Rockies into OK and KS by Wednesday morning.

It may be hard to believe a snow storm is heading our way after a warm weekend in the 60's.  A cold front to the north will move through tonight and then the cold air is staying around for a while.  Tonight lows will be in the mid to upper 20's. Monday will be much cooler with highs only in the upper 30's to near 40.  Christmas Eve night will be cold but dry.  Then the winter storm moves in on Christmas Day.  There is a Winter Storm Watch for these counties from Tuesday 3pm to Wednesday 6am. The storm will pull out of Texas and move across Arkansas on Tuesday.  The heavy snow will set up just to the north of the low pressure.

Today, we'll be just fine, if not below average in the temperature department. Highs will manage the low 40s with clouds on the increase late in the day. We're still tracking a Winter Storm that is moving in from the west. Because of this, we are under a Winter Storm Watch starting early Thursday morning through Friday. Here's the breakdown below: The track and intensity of this weather system is still up in the air somewhat, but we will see some locations get upwards of 7" of snow.

Today, we're talking our winter storm. We have a Winter Weather Advisory in effect until 7am Friday morning. Here's my full breakdown on the event: Our latest weather models are indicating mainly snow for the Springfield area, while those folks towards the south and west will see more of a rain/mix. A fine line of heavy snow is possible stretching from Nevada through NE Springfield and onto the Ava and West Plains area. Totals will range a lot with this storm.

After all the snow from Thursday, Friday will be much calmer.  We'll have (at times) a shot for light drizzle or a possible flurry, but, for the most part, the snow has ended -- for now.  I'm expecting highs in the upper 30s while lows only plunge to the low 30s under mostly cloudy skies. We have a Winter Storm Watch in effect for our northern counties that starts on Saturday. Yes, another system is heading our way that could bring some decent snow chances to the Ozarks. It'll be mainly rain on Saturday as temperatures will be in the low 40s. It could get heavy at times and should continue through the overnight hours.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -  Not everyone could stay home and ride out the storm. Nurses from nursing homes and retirement community workers had to go to work. The elderly people in our community depend on them, especially during bad weather.. Officials at Oxford Health Care say they started preparing for the winter storm days ago. "When something like this happens, it really becomes a non-event because we are able to execute the plans that we have made," says Shallina Bowers with Oxford Health Care.  When our methodologists predicted icy conditions, managers at this retirement community formed a plan, making sure enough staff was on hand to ensure patients safety "If weather is iffy at all, we find its better to be safe and put people in arrangements where they are going to be able to come to work then be caught off guard and patients not have care," says Bowers.

Springfield, MO--"It's kind of a waiting game. " says Mike Stafford with the City of Springfield Public Works.  Today his workers pre-loaded trucks full of salt.  The salt helps to melt the snow and sleet but if it turns to rain they won't treat the roads because the material would just wash off. "If it's more of a snow/sleet mixture we will probably try to pre-treat before it hits Springfield.  It helps break the bond between ice and snow on...

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - One of the big problems during an ice storm is keeping the power on. Just a quarter-inch of ice can add hundreds of pounds to power lines and with strong winds, lines can easily snap and cut off your power. Tom Bielawski moved to his north Springfield home a year-and-a-half ago from Kansas City. The 2007 ice storm caused him to take winter storm precautions in his new home. "My daughter told us they were here without power for 8 days. I thought there was no way I was going to be in a house with some sort of backup.

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.

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for many to the northwest of Springfield through noon today, while much of the Ozarks are under a Winter Weather Advisory. Snow will be heavy at times, especially the further north you go. As the area of low pressure slides towards St Louis, the snow will eventually turn into on and off flurries for the afternoon. Some rain/snow mix could occur as well. Additional snowfall totals could reach 1-2" in Springfield with much more towards the Bolivar area.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - A portion of a winter storm that has dumped large amounts of snow across the Midwest is impacting the Ozarks today. As of 5 a.m., Cole Camp reported 9.5 inches of snow, while Bolivar, Niangua, Pleasant Hope and Miller reported 4 inches of snow. Kimberling City, Willard and Springfield reported 2 inches of snow. Power outages were reported in Camdenton, Eldon and Neosho as of 6:45 a.m. A major traffic incident was reported before the morning rush hour. In Laclede County, state troopers and transportation officials shut down Interstate 44 westbound at milepost 108 just before 5 a.m. due to several tractor-trailers' failed attempts to make it up a hill there.

It was a great end to the weekend!  Highs were in the 50's for most of us.  That will end tomorrow.  Tonight clouds will increase and winds will stay up.  Lows will be in the upper 20's and lower 30's.  There is a winter storm watch for our northern counties starting 6pm on Monday until noon on Tuesday. Showers and even a few thunderstorms will develop on Monday in the afternoon.  Highs will be in the mid to upper 40's.  By evening time the rain will start to mix with snow to our northwest.  After midnight it will be snow here in Springfield.  A band of heavy snow will set up just to the south of KC. The snow will start to end on Tuesday afternoon.  The snow gradient will be very tight.  That means there is a high bust potential with this forecast.  If the low is just 30-40 miles to the south, we will see a lot of more snow.  Here is how it looks like the snowfall totals will set up. More snow flurries are possible on Wednesday.  A dusting to maybe an inch could be possible.
