The Sedalia/Pettis County EMA Director, David Clippert reminded you to be careful.
A mix bag of stuff coming our way over the next week. It looks like we could expect to see 3-5 inches of snow starting Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning. I would really love to say there is not any ice predicted in snow, but we have seen the past couple of weeks that change pretty quickly.
We do however have a forecast for Monday showing a wintry mix of snow, ice and sleet. Good break on Tuesday with temps in the high 40’s and another chance of a wintry mix on Wednesday turning to snow on Thursday. That is still a ways out, so every bit of that is subject to change. Again none of this is expected to be a major winter event, just enough to make it a pain.
The MoDOT is preparing to clear the roads with the weekend storm.
