Posted October 24, 2018 12:08:59What to expect: What will you be able to camp out on at your campsite in the middle of a blizzard?
What will your family be doing at your campground?
What can you do to help?
The answer depends on where you are.
According to the National Weather Service in Missouri, the snowfall will be minimal and will continue to drop in Missouri and neighboring states until November 30.
The National Weather Agency (NWS) in St. Louis said the precipitation will be more moderate and the snow will be “extremely light” during the early part of the week.
“This is a long-lived, persistent weather system,” NWS meteorologist Bill Reith said in a statement.
“The storm system will last a couple of days before it will weaken and return to the same path as it did on Sunday, November 14.”
Snow will continue through Friday.
However, a forecast from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) said the storm will likely weaken by Friday.
“We expect to see less snow as the system moves eastward through the central Plains on Monday and Tuesday,” NCAR meteorologist Mark Massey said in an email.
“However, we are anticipating some snowfall across the Plains by Tuesday.”
It is likely that the snow and rain will come in the form of snow, rain and ice, and that it will start on Friday.
It will be cold and wet in Missouri by the weekend, according to the NWS.
While the National Guard has said it is ready to deploy, the weather service said they are also ready to help out.
The Storm Prediction Center in St Louis said there is a possibility that more snow will fall during the next few days.
“It’s a big storm,” Massey added.
“It will be heavy snow.”
The storm will have a chance to develop over the next several days, but the snow, rainfall and freezing temperatures will be a real challenge.
“The storm is going to be a very heavy snowstorm with significant amounts of precipitation,” the NCSM said.
“If you live in the St. Clair County area, it will be one of the most intense and dangerous winter weather events in the area in the last 10 years,” the weather agency added.
“I am sure we will be hearing about the effects of this storm for weeks to come,” Masse said.
“Hopefully the storm system moves into the Plains on Tuesday and Wednesday, then it will slowly turn back over to the east, which will bring more snow and freezing rain.”
The National Guard is expected to be activated by Thursday.
The National Weather Forecast Office in St Clair County said the number of people expected to evacuate the St Clair area will be limited.
“No decisions have been made on whether or not the Guard is ready for deployment,” the Forecast Center said in the statement.
