Chance for snow for Joplin area downgraded

(From MODOT)

Weather Forecast: Earlier snow predictions have been downgraded across Southwest Missouri. However, snow is still expected to fall in the southern part of Missouri with heavier amounts in southeast Missouri Christmas night into Wednesday. In some areas of south-central Missouri, precipitation may begin as rain or sleet and then change over to snow.
Driving will become difficult as the winter storm increases in intensity Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
Possible snow accumulations in Southwest Missouri:
-- 1 inch in Stone County.
-- 2 to 3 inches in Taney County including the Branson area.
-- A dusting of snow in Webster County.
Snow totals could vary depending on how the storm tracks across the area.
Winds could gust up to 29 mph hour tonight into tomorrow which could create visibility problems with dry, blowing snow.
