Warm and moist air advected into the region ahead of a frontal and low pressure system to produce a variety of winter weather across the Missouri Ozarks and southeast Kansas on Monday. Most of the wintry precipitation occurred where the colder air existed over parts of central Missouri where some 2 to 3 inches of snow occurred. As the warmer air advected into the region, precipitation changed over to some sleet and freezing rain and drizzle. Further south, most of the precipitation remained in the form of rain. Eventually, a cold front pushed through the area dropping temperatures below freezing at the surface with some very light snow or freezing drizzle occurring.
