CAPE GIRARDEAU — A large swath of southern Missouri is working to dig out from a storm that has coated the region with a mix of snow, ice and sleet.
The National Service says that from Thursday to Friday, 6 to 12 inches of snow fell in areas of the state south of Interstate 44, with some of the heaviest accumulations recorded near the Missouri-Arkansas border.
Another storm system was expected to hit the state late Saturday and early Sunday, dumping 1 to 3 inches in north and west-central Missouri, with the heaviest snows near the Iowa-Missouri border. Only a dusting of snow is expected further south.
Although a wind chill advisory covering much of the southern half of the state was allowed to expire mid-morning Saturday, temperatures remain well below average.
