After two weeks of unseasonably warm weather, a powerful storm system slammed across the eastern Plains on Tuesday, dumping over a foot of snow to drought stricken portions of southeast Kansas. Accumulating snows stretched northeast across the Missouri border, reaching into portions of the Kansas City area through the afternoon. Further east, mostly light amounts of a snow, sleet and freezing rain mix occurred.

The exiting storm then gained a second wind as it pulled east of the Mississippi River late Tuesday evening, causing precipitation to reintensify over northeast Missouri. Locations from Kirksville to Atlanta and Macon picked up a quick 1 to 2 inches of wet snow and freezing rain.
