So a chance for a winter storm might seem odd, but the fates are allowing the elements to lineup for our first accumulating snowfall of the season by Wednesday night.
A low pressure is currently tracking eastward from southern California and will likely infiltrate the Great Plains by tonight.
A rain forecast is in hand for Wednesday afternoon, but precipitation is expected to persist through the overnight hours, when temperatures cool enough for continuous snow.
The heaviest snow is expected north of Missouri, but areas in northwest Missouri are expected to see anywhere between 1 and 4 inches of snow (more could fall for our border counties).
And Thursday looks to be the worst day of all with ferocious winds blowing snow around. Even areas that get just a little bit of snow could see low visibility.
Friday and the weekend look chilly, but thankfully a little relief from wind and precipitation.
