By 10:15 a.m., the fire department reported road conditions improving quickly in the Branson area.

The snow continued to spread east late in the morning along Highway 60 toward Fordland.

Rain changing over to snow is expected in the Ozarks Monday and Tuesday, and although the track of the storm is still in question, there is the possibility of accumulating snow impacting, heavy at times, impacting parts of southwest Missouri.
