SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A record-breaking stretch of weather will continue into the night.
The National Weather Service says upper level low pressure will nearly stall out across northern Arkansas tonight. Cold mid level temperatures beneath this low in conjunction with a continued influx of cold Canadian air will continue the threat for wintry precipitation.
Light to occasionally moderate snow is again expected tonight with pockets of freezing drizzle also expected late tonight along the higher terrain of the Ozark plateau.
Surface temperatures will also hover right around the freezing mark for several hours overnight, resulting in a risk for damage to sensitive vegetation.
A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect from 8 p.m. Friday to 7 a.m. Saturday for the following Missouri counties: Wright, Newton, Lawrence, Christian, Douglas, McDonald, Barry, and Stone. Also, from 10 p.m. Friday to 10 p.m. Saturday in Arkansas for the following counties: Carroll, Benton, Washington, and Madison.
Additional snow accumulations in Missouri up to an inch are expected with locally higher amounts possible.
