The sun makes a return today. A cold front will sweep across the Plains States tonight, likely bringing an inch, or less, of snow to areas of west central and central Missouri Thursday morning. This snow might make the morning commute a bit tricky Thursday; especially in areas to the east and to the south of Kansas City. The front will take the snow east with it by Thursday afternoon, but cloud cover and cold temperatures will linger to start the weekend as a significant winter storm system moves across the southern Missouri. But, there is hope. The sun may poke it’s head out from behind the clouds late this weekend, which will help with a modest warm up as we start next work week. Here’s the 7-day forecast from the National Weather Service:
