Winter Storm Expected Tuesday Night, Caution Urged on Area Roads
It seems like winter just won't let up as Missouri is expected to receive yet another winter storm Tuesday night.
The Missouri Department of Transportation is urging drivers to use extreme caution during Tuesday evening's commute.
Snow is expected to rapidly develop during the late afternoon and evening hours. According to the National Weather Service, the system could bring a mix of freezing rain and drizzle late Tuesday night.
MoDOT says bridges, overpasses and roads will be impacted. Driving conditions will be hazardous toward the end of Tuesday’s evening rush hour. Parts of the state could get as much as 4 inches of snow.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Sedalia/Pettis County through 9:00 Wednesday morning, with 1-4 inches of snow possible and ice accumulations of up to fifteen hundredths of an inch.
“Please don’t drive too fast for the conditions,” said Becky Allmeroth, MoDOT State Maintenance Engineer / Chief Safety and Operations Officer. “Take it slow and don’t follow too closely. Be careful and leave extra space between you and the vehicle in front of you.”
