Be prepared for a very snowy, rainy and possibly icy weekend across Mid-Missouri this weekend! Here is the latest on what we can expect.
FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect until midnight tonight (Friday 1/10)
WINTER STORM WARNINGS AND ADVISORIES until midnight Sunday (1/12)
Meteorologist Jon Carney with the National Weather Service says heavy rain and storms are forecast to start Friday afternoon, triggering a flash flood watch. That looks to transition to sleet and freezing rain early Saturday morning (Sat), then up to three inches of snow during the day.
“Four-wheel drives help you go. They don’t help you stop,” Carney says. “Just try to slow down and keep your distances and be safe.”
A winter weather advisory was issued Friday morning until midnight Sunday for Boone County. Winter storm warnings were issued early Friday north and west of Columbia.
