Temperatures have gone at or slightly above freezing this morning. Precipitation is moving in from the Missouri valley and should arrive in the region late this afternoon. With the temperatures near freezing and faster timing of the system this precipitation may begin as a mix of rain or sleet before changing quickly to snow. Periods of light snow are expected through Saturday with around an inch by Christmas night. Numerous snow showers are still expected Sunday due to an upper level low producing additional accumulations for a weekend total still from 1 to 3 inches. This will be the only weather statement this weekend due to the Christmas holiday unless there is a drastic change in expected conditions. Happy holidays once again.
