Up to four inches could fall in the metro by Sunday.
Forecasters say the third major snowstorm in a month will come down from the Rocky Mountains and could dump 8 or more inches of snow on parts of the Midwest this weekend. Cities likely to get blanketed include Kansas City, Indianapolis, Omaha and Springfield, Ill. The same storm could bring snow to parts of the Northeast early next week.
Channel 6 meteorologist Greg Albrecht posted:
- Cloudy and cool conditions expected throughout most of the day with highs in the middle 30s. As the day progresses expect snow to develop from the southwest and gradually push to the northeast. Light snow will likely start in our far western counties during the late morning with light snow holding off in the metro until later this afternoon. There is a winter weather advisory from 4pm this afternoon until early Sunday morning. Counties just to the south of the metro will likely see 3-5" with 2-4" possible in the metro, lighter amounts to the north. Tonight will be chilly with lows in the middle 20s along with breezy conditions. Light to moderate snow will continue into the overnight with the heaviest snow falling to our south. The snow will gradually end on Sunday with lingering clouds and windy conditions. Strong northwest winds will make it feels like it's in the 20's despite air temperatures reaching for the middle 30s.
