A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect through 7 AM Saturday for eastern Kentucky and southwest Virginia. Some areas across Mid-Missouri could see some bands of heavier snow falling this morning, which will lead to some light accumulations, mainly on grassy or elevated surfaces. While there could be some gusty winds as this system swings through, severe weather is not expected. Highs lower 70s. Rain chance 20%. The wind will keep blowing all afternoon, making it feel like we're in the low 40s even as our actual air temperatures warm to near 50° F. A few flurries are possible Monday night.

Drier and chilly weather returns for much of next week. Thursday morning is likely going to be the coldest start of the week, with lows in the 20s.

Scattered snow showers, sometimes mixed with rain, will continue to move through the mountains Monday morning as that low pressure system pushes through to our southeast. Rain looks to move back in Friday afternoon with highs nearing 60 degrees. There is a 40 percent chance that rain will fall in the afternoon.
