If you thought we were out of the thick of it, think again.
Mother Nature has another round of severe winter weather in store for the Springfield area this weekend.
National Weather Service Meteorologist Ernie Groetsch says light snow may happen overnight into Saturday but the heavy, long duration, snow will pick up Saturday night through Sunday and into Monday.
Forecasters expect there to be between 6 to 10 inches in the immediate Springfield area with ice further south of Springfield.
Groetsch also says that the snow could stick around well into next week with high temperatures only forecast to be up to 20 degrees.
A mixture of ice is expected further south of Springfield.
