A winter storm is threatening to move into the Kansas City area later this week, bringing the chance of snow and colder temperatures on Friday and Saturday. Up to three inches of snow looks possible, the highest amounts south of U.S. Highway 30 in Indiana.

Even if you see your area getting less snow, that is not cause to celebrate.

Snow accumulations are expected with this storm.

An additional inch of snow is possible for the rest of the morning on Sunday, but most we'll likely see far less than that.

Travel could be impacted by light snow or ice accumulations, especially north and west of Raleigh.

This will be a long duration event eventually giving most areas on the order of two to four inches of total snowfall by the time things come to an end Sunday morning.

This is an actively changing storm, so for the latest updates, keep listening to KMOX for weather updates every 10 minutes.

During the day Friday, rain will surge northeastward across the southern and central Plains.

The watch that's in effect from Friday night through Sunday morning covers 25 in counties and includes the cities of Indianapolis, Bloomington, Columbus, Terre Haute and Vincennes, as well as numerous other communities.

A Winter Storm Watch has already been issued for southern IL into eastern Missouri ahead of the system. Snow may continue to fall into the game. The snow will become widespread over Missouri and IL overnight.

On the storm's southside, more heavy rain will fall on the already saturated South.
