Here is Joplin. Can't believe it! Feb 17th our first "major" snowfall of the year. (Only suppose to get maybe 2 inches which is really nothing)

When had a dusting twice before once in Dec and last Saturday. Few Flurries maybe 2 or 3 times.

I think it was ch 12 saying we would get a inch and Ch 7 saying 2 to 4

I have no idea about 16

Weather Channel says one inch

I think we have half an inch now.

Snowing very good here in Springfield. Just got done driving home from work in the midst of it. One major hill had a few cars pulled off with blinkers on, but I tredged my way through at 30 MPH...lol. John, the guy I've been talking about made sure to follow me. He has a four wheel drive. Anyway, we're supposed to get 2-4 inches by 8AM. Glad I went and rented my movies today. I am soooo in for the weekend!

Yeah it's supposed to snow through tomorrow morning. Remember how warm it was here yesterday morning? It was like 65 when I woke up, and it was like 20 by 6 pm. That's Missouri for your ass

wow, that's a big difference for 150 miles away. I figured we would have bad weather last night because of the huge temp drop, but it never happened.

It is currently 35 here in Austin and they are talking freezing rain and possible snow before morning. It was over 70 and gorgeous yesterday (Thursday for those keeping score at home. I am still at work so it is still Friday as far as I am concerned) but a front moved in last night. On my way home, I felt the temperature drop 5-10 degree within about 1 mile.

My boss called. Before she was able to leave, there were some employees who came back that couldn't make it up the hill (we're in a valley). She said that, including her, there were seven people there. I told her that I felt bad for them, but that it made me glad I made it home.

So when you say 2-4 inches, is that from the escort home or snow fall amount?

Just curious : )

Oh hell, I don't mind this at all. This is only the 2nd cold snap of the year where it has dipped below zero, childs play. Fishing , hunting and ATV riding in the spring, summer and fall make it all worth it. Bring your worst in February mother nature you old wench and I'll spit in your face come spring.

Inside The Weather...

The winter storm has essentially gone as planned through early Saturday, with snowfall ranging from near 1" in Springfield to as high as 6" in parts of northern Arkansas. Road conditions are not good, as you might assume. Click on the links above for the latest updates from the highway departments.



The biggest news today will be the bitter cold. The snow will be coming to an end, and road conditions will continue to be quite slick. Temperatures will warm very little, if any, today. Expect highs in the teens and wind chills below zero.



Skies could clear partially tonight, and with fresh snow cover, temperatures will likely plummet to below zero over the deeper snow pack in Arkansas and far southern Missouri. A small upper disturbance will ride through the flow tomorrow and could bring a few flurries, but I don't expect any additional accumulation.

I have an insert with a blower in my fireplace. I have been making regular runs out to the wood pile and have had a massive fire going for two days. It saves me a ton on my heating bill.

It's wicked cold here in Denver. When I came home from work yesterday, my car thermometer was reading -3 to -4 F, and apparently it was -9 later that night. Windy, too, which made it a long walk to the car.

It stopped snowing early this morning. Only got about an inch. It's friggin' cold though. Not as cold as Denver, but cold enough to keep me inside. This is the worst it's gotten all winter. It's about time.

Oh, don't get me wrong. I'm not a big fan of this stuff either. We just haven't had much of a winter for the past few years. Just doesn't seem natural compared to the winters we got while I was growing up.

Looking at the radar loop http://www.crh.noaa.gov/radar/loop/DS.p20-r/si.ksgf.shtml the nasty stuff is sliding straight east and is staying south of Springfield, thus far anyway.

Got to ride with my bro from Wichita to Dennison TX and back yesterday to pick up a boat. In the a.m. we went through all that ice in OK. I-35 was a solid sheet of ice. Saw several cars wipe out and an Explorer roll down the embankment. Thankfully the sole passenger was alright. Luckily when we came back through the roads were clear.
