In the Ozarks, this storm will initially bring showers and maybe some thunder to the area, but as the upper level low moves into the area Monday evening, temperatures will cool and we could see a band of rain and wet snow move across the area Monday night with snow moving out early Tuesday.
The heaviest axis of snow with this system will occur from south central Kansas toward the Kansas City metropolitan area.
A Winter Storm Watch has been posted for Bourbon, Crawford, Cherokee, Benton, Morgan, Miller, Vernon, St. Clair, Hickory, Camden, Barton, and Cedar counties.
Areas around Nevada, Clinton and Lake of the Ozarks could see more than 4 inches of snowfall. Snowfall amounts of 6-10 inches, with locally higher amounts, will be possible north of a Columbus, Kansas to Osage Beach, Missouri line.
Accumulations of greater than an inch will be possible as far south and east as the Interstate 44 corridor. Gusty northeast to northerly winds will also occur with this system Monday night into Tuesday with gusts over 30 mph likely.
While this snowfall is not expected to be heavy, accumulations may be high enough to cause travel impacts.
The National Weather Service is urging motorists in Western, Northwest and Central Missouri to be prepared for treacherous conditions on Monday and into Tuesday.
