A mix of snow and sleet hit the Springfield metro area just in time for the drive home Tuesday.

National Weather Service meteorologist Cory Rothstein says that will eventually transition to either rain or freezing rain tonight.

“There is the potential with some of this sleet and snow that’s initially coming in that we could see some moderate to heavy quick bursts of snowfall rates. With that, you could see some accumulations on roads. Right now, we’re expecting it to mainly be on grassy surfaces.”

Up to three inches of snow is possible in the Springfield area, along with up to a tenth of an inch of ice.

Areas along the Arkansas line could get trace amounts of snow.

Rothstein says some places in south central Missouri could get some thunderstorms with sleet and hail mixed in.
