Weather forecasters in Springfield are keeping an eye on a storm system approaching the West Coast that might bring some significant snow to Arkansas and southwest Missouri by Friday evening.
The storm’s track will determine how much — if any — snow Springfield could get.
“This won’t be blizzard stuff, just moderate snow tracking from the southwest,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Eric Wise. “It’s looking like this will be mostly an Arkansas event, with the impacts being less the farther north you go.”
Wise said forecasters should have a better idea of the storm system’s track and potential snow amounts by Wednesday.
The weather service’s forecast now is calling for a chance of rain turning to snow between noon and 5 p.m. Friday, then turning to snow Friday evening and into Saturday.
Predicted snowfall amounts will become clearer as forecasters get a better handle on the storm’s path.
