SPRINGFIELD, Mo.—This winter storm will continue across the Ozarks with a band of heavy snow now pushing across Springfield. 

This band of snow will continue to shift east this morning and through the early afternoon.  Snow should taper off to flurries west of highway 65 a little after Noon, with snow ending further west later in the day.  

Snowfall totals will range from 3 to 6 inches west of Springfield to 6 to 10 inches east with the heaviest focusing near the I-44 corridor.  In addition to the snow, strong winds will gust to 20 to 30 mph, drifting the snow and reducing visibility.

Dangerous cold is accompanying the snow with temperatures in the teens and wind chills below zero.  Travel should be limited today through Monday morning with many roads likely remaining snow covered especially secondary roads.  Temperatures tonight into tomorrow are predicted to be the coldest temperatures the area has had in the last three years.  Lows will be below zero tonight, approaching -10 near Waynesville and Rolla. 

 The record low for Springfield is -12.  We'll likely see lows around -7.  Highs Monday will only be in the single digits.  Wind chills tonight into Monday morning will be -20 to -30 at times.  Bitter cold will last through Tuesday morning with moderating temperatures thereafter.
