COLUMBIA — Another winter storm is taking aim at mid-Missouri.
The National Weather Service issued a statement at 4:02 p.m. Friday warning of the potential for a significant winter storm Sunday night and early Monday morning.
"Current indications are that total snowfall amounts of 3 to 5 inches will be possible for portions of central and eastern Missouri," the statement reads.
Butch Dye of the National Weather Service in St. Louis said meteorologists will need about 24 hours before they can be certain of how much snow will accumulate.
The new batch of snow is expected to begin falling Sunday evening and continue into Monday.
Because temperatures Friday were close to the freezing point, some precipitation fellas a mixture of rain and snow. Meteorologist Ben Miller of the National Weather Service in St. Louis said temperatures were expected to be in the upper 20s by Sunday, and that precipitation would likely be all snow.
