Snow Accompanies Cold Blast Through Parts of the Ozarks

The expected rush of Arctic Air into the Ozarks came with some snowfall in some areas.

The snow began late Tuesday evening and through the overnight hours, up to two inches of snow were reported to the National Weather Service in the Springfield Area.

Storm Dar Randy Luna says in a Facebook Post noted that fast dropping temperatures as well as the powdery snow that fell made the snow stick to all surfaces including the roadways.

Many schools in the metro Springfield Area were cancelled Wednesday as roadways and parking lots were extremely hazardous.

Although most of the Branson Tri-Lakes Region just got snow flurries, about a half dozen schools in the mainly northern part of the area did call of school plus the OTC-Table Rock Campus in Hollister followed suit with the other campuses in the system and called off classes.
