The warmer temperatures and spring-like weather will be ending today as cooler temperatures settle in, and precipitation is expected for Wednesday. The big question is, will we see any snow?
Our current forecast from Weatherology is talking about cooler temperatures starting today, as well as precipitation on Wednesday. Weatherology says we will receive some form of precipitation. Yet, they stop short of using the snow word. It will also be cooling off some. 51 is the expected high in Sedalia today, 48 on Wednesday, with temperatures in the low to mid-40s after that.
So what kind of precipitation should we prepare for? The guidance provided by The National Weather Service is downplaying our snow chances.
