A series of upper level disturbances brought multiple rounds of snowfall to the region from Friday night into Sunday. The first round of snow fell across primarily southern Missouri on Friday night. Snowfall amounts ranged from a dusting to a little over an inch with the highest totals from the Table Rock Lake region back towards the Oklahoma border.

Snow then intensified while it shifted east and northeast across the Missouri Ozarks Saturday morning and early Saturday afternoon. Moderate to occasionally heavy snow then fell for much of the day. The snow began to lighten up from west to east across the region Saturday evening. However, periodic snow and sleet showers then developed and affected much of the region overnight. Patchy freezing drizzle also developed across the Ozarks starting Saturday evening, with several areas across far southern Missouri also reporting light freezing rain.

The light wintry mix of precipitation then shifted primarily into central Missouri by Sunday morning before ending by mid-afternoon.

Storm total snow accumulations were in the 4-6" range across much of the Missouri Ozarks and extreme southeastern Kansas. A swath of snowfall in the 6-7" range fell across portions of the central and eastern Missouri Ozarks.

Many locations also saw a thin glaze of ice accumulation. Some locations across far south-central Missouri received slightly higher amounts with totals around a quarter of an inch.

Below is a general map of snowfall totals from the Friday night into Sunday time frame. In many cases, snowfall amounts varied considerably over short distances. Thus, the values on this map may not exactly represent what was received at a given location.
