Spring Snow Shower Expected for Pettis County
Spring may have started on Mar. 20, but it looks like winter still wants to shine. The National Weather Service has been predicting snow for the next couple of days. Some areas were expected to get up to five inches, others around one or two.
Sedalia/Pettis County EMA Director, David Clippert, has been following the expected storms and the accumulation has changed in the last 24 hours.
Today should really not be an issue with snow, still in the 1-2" amount," Clipper said. If you look at the radar picture, you can see it is heading our way, but it is light snow. What it isn’t showing is heavier snow south of us which could be in the 4-6" range. The bigger issue is what will happen this weekend. So far things are starting to point toward a heavier snow event, with some models showing Pettis in the 6" inch range, with the heaviest amounts over towards the St Louis area with around 12". That is still a couple days away, so that my very well change by Saturday evening.
