That heaviest snow bands with this system appear to be just south and southeast of the metro area. Subtle changes in the track on the system can push thon ties slightly north or south when we see the development of the storm. Most of the subway will see about six to eight inches of snow with the option of up to one foot over southeastern Missouri and southwestern Illinois.

It will be a dry, soft snow given temperatures back in the individual digits as it falls. This will make the treatment of roads more difficult as chemicals are not as effective in the cold temperatures. Travel problems are likely to be widespread across the Ohio Valley in deep southern Texas and into the southern plains.

The brutal cold continues as well. With snow on the ground, morning temperatures will be around zero in many areas the next few mornings.

In addition, a stiff wind will continue to create dangerously cold emotion-like readings. The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill instruction for Monday for most of our area with Pike and Montgomery counties in Missouri upgraded to a wind chill warning due to chills of 20 to 30 degrees below zero.
