The City of Columbia wrote on its social media on Tuesday evening that it will have public works crews monitoring road conditions.

About a half-inch of snow is expected to fall around Mid-Missouri, according to the ABC 17 News Stormtrack Weather Team. Temperatures are expected to drop to the low 20s on Tuesday evening with wind chills being around 10 degrees. Wind chills on Wednesday morning are expected to be between 8-12 degrees.

"City of Columbia Public Works crews will be on duty overnight to actively monitor and respond to winter weather conditions as needed. Pavement temperatures are projected to stay above freezing until between 2 and 4 a.m. Impacts to Wednesday morning's commute are possible as temperatures fall to the low 20s," the post reads. "Your safety is our priority. Drivers are advised to exercise caution, travel at reduced speeds and remain vigilant during winter weather conditions. Additionally, please be mindful of the possibility for tree damage due to the high winds."
