MoDOT issues state-wide travel advisory

   JEFFERSON CITY, MO – With weekend snow and freezing rain covering the most of the state, Missouri travelers are advised to use caution if they must travel Sunday evening and Monday morning.
   Snow, sleet and freezing rain is expected to continue statewide, affecting road conditions overnight. Extreme cold temperatures and high wind continues to be a concern, causing blowing and drifting snow.
   "MoDOT crews will work throughout the night to keep roads plowed and treated," said Beth Wright, MoDOT state maintenance engineer. "We encourage people to stay tuned to local weather forecasts, check road conditions on MoDOT's traveler map, and avoid travel if possible."
   Heavier snow is in the forecast for northern and central Missouri with accumulations expected to reach from 3 to 6 inches, and a possibility of 1 to 3 inches in the southern counties of the state. Precipitation is expected to continue through Monday morning.
   If you must travel, take your mobile phone and winter survival supplies. If you become stranded, stay with your vehicle and call 911. Be aware that emergency responders may have difficulty reaching you. 
   Remember the following winter driving tips:
 
   ·       Wear your seat belt.
   ·       Slow down, and adjust your speed to the conditions.
   ·       Give snow plows plenty of room.
   ·       Keep your windshield and windows clear to help you see.
   ·       Be alert and remember that road conditions can change very quickly.
   ·       Allow extra travel time to get to your destination.
 
   Stay informed about Missouri road conditions by using MoDOT's Traveler Information Map, available online at www.modot.org or through the smartphone app. The map offers current views of road conditions for Missouri interstates and highways. You can zoom in to a particular location, check live weather radar and view images from MoDOT's traffic cameras and message boards.
   MoDOT also provides road conditions information through the Customer Service Center. Dial 1-888-ASK-MODOT (1-888-275-6636) to speak to a customer service representative. They are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

A light dusting of snow has transportation officials monitoring road temperatures and condtions overnight.

St. Louis County and St. Louis City street crews pre-treated the roads Thursday evening in an effort to prevent any morning rush hour surprises. But both MoDOT and IDOT officials decided to wait and monitor. Both transportation departments say they'll adjust as conditions warrant.

At midnight, road temperature sensors were showing the interstates all above freezing. But drivers are being cautioned to use extra care on elevated roadways, ramps and bridges.

Second major winter storm to hit Kansas City

That major winter storm is threatening to bring blizzard conditions to the north and central portion of Missouri--hitting Kansas City hard and in other parts of the central Plains today. 

Kansas City leaders are  telling people to move their cars off the street or they'll be towed. This snow plow driver says cars parked haphazardly have made it been difficult to clear the streets. "It's not that we haven't tried or haven't been there. Just a lot of times we get there and we can't get through."

 Kansas City - which got a foot of snow last week - could get another 15 inches staring Monday afternoon Jesse Bustamonte was out with a shovel clearing a storm drain in front of his house Sunday. "I had to dig out a friend of mine. Every time he tried to move he was spinning his wheels because of the ice. So it was dig out and move, dig out and move."

The National Weather Service in Dodge City, Kan. says there could be "upward of a foot across south-central Kansas with lesser amounts across west-central and central Kansas." The storm also could bring tornadoes to the South.
