The National Weather Service is predicting several waves of winter weather will sweep Missouri in the next 36 hours, with the worst Friday night through Saturday morning.
Some light snow Friday morning could be accompanied by a light glazing of ice starting in the Ozarks and moving through the northern half of Missouri through Friday.
Around midnight Saturday morning heavy snow will begin that will leave 3-5 inches of accumulation across northern Missouri, with a swath of up to a tenth-of-an-inch of ice stretching from north of Joplin to about St. Louis.
The Weather Service says it will be a good time not to get out if you don’t have to and recommends watching for updates. Winter weather warning products are being issued for most of the state.
