Winter Storm Watch Issued for West Central Missouri

Winter Storm

Could the last gasp of winter be coming this week? The National Weather Service is predicting snow to impact this area on Wednesday night (Feb. 20) and Thursday (Feb. 21). A Winter Storm Watch has been issued, and they are projecting that a bulk of the snow should be north of Highway 36, while I-70 and Highway 50 areas could get a lot of ice, sleet and snow.

Sedalia/Pettis County EMA Director David Clippert said via Facebook:

Anytime from around midnight to 2 a.m. Thursday is when Pettis is expected to start receiving snow. This will shortly turn to sleet, with light freezing rain to follow the sleet. The majority of the freezing rain will be south of I-70, so hopefully we may miss most of that. We can expect about 1/10th to 2/10th of an inch of ice. This could cause some sporadic power outages. The good news is that we will not have heavy winds, which means we shouldn’t have too many issues with downed power lines.

If bad weather does hit this area, you can be sure we’ll have school and event cancellations, postponements and delays on the air and online right here.

How much snow or ice do you think we’ll get?
