Snow from Upper Midwest to northern New England; Blizzard Conditions in Alaska

A storm system will slide from the Upper Midwest to New England through Tuesday with heavy snow and some hefty accumulations. The same system will potentially produce heavy rain and possible flooding on Tuesday and Wednesday from the South to Texas. Finally, in Alaska, a strengthening system over the Bering Sea will sweep across the state with strong winds and heavy snow through midweek. Read More >

A mix of wintry precipitation moved into the region early Friday morning starting as freezing rain that turned into accumulating snowfall late on Friday into the overnight hours Saturday morning. Roadways became treacherous Friday morning as a thin glaze of freezing rain coated area roadways. Temperatures slowly warmed to above freezing during the day, improving driving conditions across the area during the day.

As temperatures dropped overnight, precipitation changed over from rain to snow. The heaviest band of snow fell from near Ft. Leonard Wood northeastward toward St. Louis. Some areas of the Ozarks saw accumulations of 3 to 4 inches with a band of lighter snow, around 1 to 3 inches, extending from the Springfield and Branson areas east to West Plains and Eminence.
