If you're getting ready for the commute home today, the roads are in an improved condition, city officials say. However, more precipitation is in the forecast through Wednesday.
Jefferson City Operations Division Director Britt Smith said streets were in good shape by Wednesday afternoon.
"Our main crews were going since midnight so we let them go around 3 p.m.," he said. "We had a small crew to handle trouble spots overnight."
Smith said because the track of the storm shifted, the snow started early.
"We tried to hold off bringing in the crews as long as we could," he said. "Luckily we did not have a lot of blowing snow."
"The temperatures were a blessing," said Cole County Public Works Director Larry Benz. "Staying above freezing helped us on our salt supply."
Benz and Smith said they were holding their breath to see how bad the next snow event will be, predicted to be a 1-3 inch snowfall Wednesday morning.
The National Weather Service downgraded its earlier Winter Storm Warning on Tuesday afternoon to a Winter Weather Advisory in effect through Wednesday. This statement was issued:
...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM CST WEDNESDAY...
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN ST LOUIS HAS ISSUED A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR SNOW AND FREEZING DRIZZLE... WHICH IS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM CST WEDNESDAY.
