The tricky part for Sunday is once again a delicate dance between temperatures and timing. Temperatures on Saturday are forecast to make it into the upper 40s to 50, which means any precipitation that starts Saturday night should fall initially as rain. As temperatures drop overnight into Sunday, we should see a transition first to wet snow before becoming all snow. A shift in temperatures upward by just a few degrees will result in more rain and less snow (similar to last Sunday)... A few degrees cooler and that means more snow with less rain. 

At this time it's possible to see 2"-5" of snow along the I-44 corridor through Missouri up the I-70 corridor in Illinois. 5"-8"+ is possible along and North of the I-70 corridor. We will continue to fine tune the forecast as the system approaches and more data becomes available.
