Missouri may see its first snowfall
 

JEFFERSON CITY -- Drivers should use caution as Missouri may see its first snowfall of the season Thursday. The National Weather Service forecast calls for winter precipitation for the central, Kansas City area and northern parts of the state.

“There is always the potential for more accidents during the first winter weather event of the season, because drivers haven’t experienced those conditions for several months,” said MoDOT State Maintenance Engineer Becky Allmeroth. “Please slow down, and allow extra time for travel.”

Here are some safety tips:

  • Please wear your seat belt and don’t drive distracted. Buckle Up Phone Down.
  • Don’t pass a snow plow and stay back six car lengths.
  • If you encounter car troubles or are involved in a crash, please remain in your vehicle.

To check road conditions please 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.
