Winter weather makes a return to the Ozarks one month into spring.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Springfield and areas generally along and north of Highway 60 from 1 p.m. through 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Snow started around 9 a.m. in the Springfield metro area and will continue through the afternoon.
We’re expecting one to two inches in Springfield up north into central Missouri, with lesser amounts of under one inch closer to the Missouri-Arkansas border.
A few slick spots will be possible with the heaviest bands of snow, especially along and north of Highway 60, but the main potential for accumulations will be on grassy and elevated surfaces.
A freeze warning is in effect from Tuesday night into Wednesday morning as temps drop into the mid to upper 20’s with a widespread frost and a hard freeze that will kill crops.
