8 - 11" possible through late Saturday

The first major snow storm of the season, expected to arrive in the WTAD listening area this afternoon, may bring more snow than first thought.

The National Weather Service now says that the Quincy / Hannibal area can expect anywhere from 8 to 11 inches of snow starting this afternoon, through late Saturday night. Southeast Iowa, along with parts of Clark and Hancock counties, could see 5 to 7 inches. A Winter Storm Warning has already been issued for Adams, Brown and Pike Counties in Illinois and Marion, Lewis, Pike, Ralls, Monroe and Shelby counties in Missouri. The rest of the area is under a Winter Weather Advisory starting Friday night. The St. Louis area and the Columbia / Jefferson City area, could also see sleet mixed with the snow. The heaviest snow is expected in Lincoln County, Missouri, where areas could see 12 to 18 inches.

The Weather Service says that the storm is expected to cause travel to potentially be hazardous, starting overnight Friday into Saturday.
