Much Colder Today; More Rain, Winter Weather Possible

The next round snow and ice was expected to begin falling in eastern and southeastern Kansas and southwestern Missouri about 9 p.m. Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Ice accumulations are mostly expected to be less than a tenth of an inch but some localized areas could see anywhere from 0.10"-0.20" of inch of ice at most. We just continue to have these slider type systems move in from the north one after another, giving the valley and sometimes the Sierra too, a chance for snow. We'll have another round of precipitation Friday night through Saturday evening where the bulk of the precipitation type will be rain however a wintry mix is possible at times as well. The high is expected to be near 39. However, the areas that do will have slick, snow-covered roads or icy roads and potential travel delays. It will be the third wave of freezing rain in as many days.

Freezing drizzle is possible tomorrow morning before another round of freezing rain moves in from the south by late morning. New snow and sleet accumulation of around an inch possible. Temperatures in Centralia are likely to stay above freezing beginning Friday evening. For many of us, Wednesday afternoon was the warmest it had ever been for the month of February.

Friday and Saturday will feature rounds of heavy rain and thunder. Light south wind increasing to 6 to 11 miles per hour in the morning. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 73. Bridgeport also broke its daily temperature record, topping off at 63 degrees, falling short of its all-time February record.
