A large winter storm moved across the Kansas-Missouri region late Friday night and through the day Saturday.  The snow came in two rounds.  Widespread lift occurring ahead of the large upper level storm system brought the initial round of light to moderate snow.  Dry air also got drawn into the system, which held snowfall accumulations down to little more than a trace in some areas.  Snowfall amounts during this first round ranged from an inch or less from the Kansas City metro area northeast to the Kirksville area...to 2 to 4 inches across extreme northwest Missouri, as well as across portions of central Missouri.

After a bit of a lull in the snowfall during the early to mid morning hours, and as the storm system continued to move east across the region, another round of snow developed along the back edge of the storm.  This round of light to occasionally moderate snow also overspread the region, bringing an additional 1 to 2 inches of snow.  The snow tapered off during the late afternoon and evening hours.

By the time all was said and done, snow accumulations ranged from 1 to 2 inches from north Kansas City to Cameron and Chillicothe...to 3 to 6 inches across far northwest Missouri, as well as portions of central Missouri, from near Butler to Sedalia on up to Moberly.
