Snow is expected across Mid-Missouri starting Tuesday night and continuing into Wednesday morning, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).
A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect from 6 p.m. Tuesday until noon Wednesday for parts of the area, including Boone, Camden, Callaway, Cole, Maries, Miller, Moniteau, Morgan and Osage counties. Cities in the advisory include Jefferson City, Linn, Fulton, Columbia, California, Camdenton, Osage Beach, Versailles, Tuscumbia and Vienna.
The advisory means that periods of accumulating snow will primarily cause travel difficulties. Roads may rapidly become slippery once the snow begins, so motorists should plan for a slower than normal trip. Motorists should be especially alert when approaching bridges, overpasses and curves.
The overall accumulations are forecast to be up to 2 inches in areas of south-central and southeast Missouri, mainly along and south of the Missouri River. Highest chances for snow accumulation look to be between Interstate 44 and U.S. 54. Expected snowfall amounts should be less farther north with up to 1 inch possible north of Interstate 70.
