Snow began in southeast Missouri during the early to mid morning hours, before spreading eastward across the rest of the region through the early afternoon. Highest amounts were focused across the Ozark Foothills of southeast Missouri, aided by the earlier start time of the snow and colder air and ground temperatures. Further east, the snow began around midday or early afternoon, when air and ground temperatures had already warmed well above freezing. This made it difficult for snow to accumulate, and what did manage to stick melted rather quickly after the snow ended for areas of western Kentucky, far southern Illinois, and parts of southwest Indiana.
