Mid-Mo braces for more snow
Friday, January 21, 2011
After nearly 10 inches of snow fell in the Jefferson City area Wednesday night through Thursday morning, forecasters are calling for the possibility of two more winter storms in the next few days.
Meteorologist Tom Spriggs with the National Weather Service in St. Louis said 6-9 inches of powder fell with this storm, coming down at a rate of 1-2 inches per hour.
Snowfall amounts varied greatly, from little more than a trace in parts of southern Missouri to huge amounts in Mid-Missouri and parts of the St. Louis area. Snowfall totals of nearly 11 inches were reported in north St. Louis County. Parts of St. Charles County had 10 inches, and there were reports of up to 15 inches in the northern part of the metro area.
