A chance for snow Tuesday night into Wednesday morning could impact Wednesday morning commutes in sections of the state. This is an unpredictable winter system, and freezing road temperatures could produce slick spots making travel hazardous. Missouri could receive up to 2 inches of snow. Travelers, especially in the St. Louis area, should consider delaying their Wednesday morning commutes as precipitation there will be the heaviest during or just prior to that time.
Light accumulation snowfalls can be deceptive. It doesn’t take much snow and ice to create slippery roads. Slow down and drive for the conditions. Allow plenty of time. Turn your headlights on when driving in snow. If you should slide off the road, the safest place to await help is inside the vehicle with your seat belt on.
Check the forecast in your area to determine the timing and amounts of snowfall. To check road conditions, go to MoDOT’s Traveler Information Map at http://traveler.modot.org/map/. The map is also available as a free app for Apple and Android devices.
