Snow will increase Saturday late-afternoon, mixing with freezing rain south of I-70, turning to all snow through the night. Freezing rain in the Ozarks will gradually change to snow Saturday night, ending Sunday morning. Ice accumulation will range from a glaze of ice near I-70 to a tenth near I-44.
