A quick moving upper level system brought some heavy snow to the Missouri Ozarks late Thursday into Thursday night March 21st. The heaviest bands occurred after dark as a low level jet developed into the region. There were a few reports of thundersnow across southern Missouri during the evening as some convective bands developed which brought snowfall rates into the 1.5 to 2.0 inch per hour amount.
