COLUMBIA — A winter storm forecast for this weekend might have less of an impact on holiday travel than forecasters first thought.
On Tuesday, Jim Kramper of the National Weather Service in St. Louis said rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow were all possible depending on the track of the storm.
Since then, a shift in the storm toward the north has raised the weekend temperatures for Columbia, said Jayson Gosselin of the National Weather Service in St. Louis. The slightly higher temperatures could mean Columbia is less likely to experience winter weather and more likely to see rain.
However, there is still a chance for the rain to shift to freezing rain, sleet and snow late Saturday night into Sunday morning, Gosselin said.
