Winter storm blows through metro, slick roads remain

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV/AP) -

Heavy snow combined with strong winds and bitter cold Sunday created a dangerous winter mix over much of Missouri, canceling church and synagogue services and prompting warnings to get out only if absolutely necessary.

Snow will taper to flurries from the Kansas City metro to areas to the east through noon Sunday.

"Breaks of sun are possible for this afternoon, but it will be very cold and continued blowing snow is likely through the remainder of the day," KCTV5 Chief Meteorologist Chris Suchan said.

Snow that began in parts of Missouri on Saturday night picked up intensity after dawn Sunday. Several inches of snow were on the ground by mid-morning.

Roads are partially to completely snow covered and likely to remain so into Monday as the deep arctic cold really sets in.

For areas in eastern Missouri, including St. Louis, a broad 5″ to 10″ snow is likely Sunday as the winter storm will take most of the day to move out of this region.

Suchan said travel conditions will be poor across Missouri on Sunday with some improvement Monday despite the deep arctic cold.

Temperatures were largely in the 20s in the morning but expected to drop throughout the day.

Temperatures Sunday afternoon will hover from 5 degrees to 9 degrees, but it will feel like it is minus 10 degrees to minus 20 degrees with a gusty wind, Suchan said.

A wind chill warning is in effect Sunday evening, as temperatures will drop to near minus 10 degrees for the metro by sunrise. Areas to the north could see readings from minus 13 degrees to minus 19 degrees.

"Combine these air temperatures with a breeze in the morning and it will feel like it is as cold as minus 25 degrees to near minus 40 degrees," Suchan said.

Frostbite and hypothermia can set in quickly at 15 to 30 below zero. Medical experts say people should wear hats, face protection and layers of clothing.
