Through sunrise, light snow/flurries and freezing drizzle was occurring across portions of far northern Missouri. Farther south, temperatures were in the upper 30s to lower 40s, with drizzle occurring off and on through the morning. As the surface front continued to sink south and east, the freezing line followed, with a steady transition from drizzle to freezing drizzle. It was around 5 PM that the freezing line reached KCI Airport and freezing rain/drizzle became the primary precipitation type. The front's progression was slow, but once it moved in, temperatures dropped quickly. Freezing rain transitioned to snow between 7 and 8 PM for most across the northern side of the KC metro, while snow continued to be the primary precipitation through the afternoon and into the evening across northern Missouri, before ending around 8 or 9 PM. South of the Missouri river, it was a slower transition from Rain to Freezing Rain (around 7 to 8 PM) to snow (around 11 to Midnight). Overall, the greatest snow fall occurred across northern Missouri into northeastern Kansas.
