The Weather Alert Day will continue into Sunday Morning with road conditions remaining hazardous through the morning. Travel is not advised!
A winter storm warning remains in effect for many of our counties until midnight. Slick roads are likely overnight.
– Slick Roads: Many roads have improved through the afternoon hours, however, with a lot of water and slush still left on the road and temperatures dipping below freezing overnight some travel impacts can still be expected especially on side roads that remain untreated.
– Travel Impacts: As with any snowstorm, travel will be greatly impacted on roadways. This will come from congestion on the roads, slow speeds, and/or alternate routes. If you don’t have anywhere to be, stay off the roadways and let road crews do the work. The best thing you can do is stay indoors and avoid travel until tomorrow afternoon.
Columbia Regional Airport has reported 15.9″ of snowfall with this system making it the 3rd snowiest storm in official city history. Many other portions of Mid-Missouri saw EVEN more snow than that. The highest report comes out of Montgomery City with EXACTLY 20.0″.
OUT THE DOOR SUNDAY:
Slick spots are still possible in the morning Sunday… improving conditions are likely throughout the day. Temperatures will hold near freezing all day, a jacket is needed outdoors.
