Snowstorm Targets St. Louis, Indianapolis Next

The same storm system that dumped over a foot of snow in parts of Colorado at the start of the weekend will be moving eastward, bringing snow to St. Louis, Springfield and Indianapolis on Sunday.

Snow will be making its way into Illinois and Indiana early Sunday morning, then arriving in Ohio by Sunday afternoon.

The highest snow accumulations with this storm will occur in a narrow band where heavy snow will result in accumulations ranging from six inches to a foot.

This band of heavy snow will set up in between I-70 and I-80, spanning just a few hundred miles and encompassing Jefferson City and St. Louis, Mo., Springfield, Ill., Indianapolis, Ind., and Dayton, Ohio.

Travel conditions in the heaviest band of snow will be treacherous with snow-covered roads, along with flight delays. For some of these places, the snow will come after an initial period of rain.

Rain will also change to 3 to 6 inches of snow in Springfield, Mo., and Cincinnati, Ohio, while only up to a few inches of snow will fall in places on the far edges of the snowstorm, such as Louisville, Ky., Chicago, Ill., and Toledo, Ohio.

The biggest issue with snow accumulations on the far-northern and southern edges of the storm is the timing of the snow. With a higher sun angle in March than the winter months, daytime snow accumulations on pavement can be difficult unless the snow falls at a steady rate.

This snowstorm will continue its easterly track heading into Monday, bringing snow to the mid-Atlantic's I-95 cities of Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and New York City.
