Light but steady snow covered the Kansas City area Sunday night, with 2 to 4 inches expected to accumulate by early morning Monday.
The sleet that began after 6 p.m. turned to snow by around 8:30 p.m. throughout most of the area. Roads were slick, but remained mostly clear with a few accidents scattered through the area.
Missouri and Kansas highways late Sunday were mostly covered with light snow, but did not pose any reported problems for road crews that were working through the night.
“This is a typical Kansas City snow event,” National Weather Service meteorologist Mike July said Sunday night.
Never miss a local story.
The snow is expected to end before the Monday morning rush hour.
Points south and east of the metro area will see more snow, with totals as high as 6 to 8 inches in Springfield and Boonville.
Frigid temperatures will slide in behind the snow, dropping into the low teens Monday morning, with Monday’s high in the upper 20s.
Tuesday will bring a chance of snow flurries, and then even colder temperatures with highs only in the teens Wednesday, dropping close to five degrees into Thursday morning.
