Another round of snow prompts second Winter Weather Advisory


    Winter Weather Advisory for Saturday February 16, 2018<p>{/p}

    With another round of snow expected Saturday night, the National Weather Service issued a second Winter Weather Advisory in two days.

    Winter Weather Advisory for Saturday February 16, 2018

    A Winter Weather Advisory begins at 6 p.m. Saturday and lasts until 6 a.m. Sunday for every county in mid-Missouri. Snow, mixed with freezing drizzle and sleet, is expected overnight. This could lead to slippery roads during and after precipitation falls.

    Light to moderate snowfall could begin as early at 7 p.m. for central Missouri Saturday evening and is expected to last through Sunday morning.

    Falling snow could lead to reduced visibility and slippery road conditions.

    Potential Snow Totals by Sunday

    Snow totals could range between a trace to 2 inches across central Missouri, with the heaviest snow falling north of I-70. Many locations will only see up to an inch.

    Unlike Friday's winter weather, freezing drizzle and sleet could mix with snow early in this next winter weather event.

    Most of mid-Missouri will only see snow, but towns south of highway 50 have the chance to see freezing drizzle and sleet early Saturday evening.

    Area to Watch for Freezing Rain and Sleet Saturday Night

    Freezing drizzle and sleet could accumulate before snow falls, potentially leaving a thin layer of ice on elevated surfaces and untreated roads.

    Plan on slippery roads overnight Saturday and for Sunday morning.

    A few flurries could linger through Sunday afternoon, but road conditions are expected to get better through the day.

    MoDOT crews will be out treating main roads and highways in mid-Missouri, but are advising against unnecessary travel through Sunday morning. Any untreated surfaces could become slippery faster Saturday evening.

    To check road conditions in your town, check the MoDOT Traveler Map.

    Be sure to follow Meteorologist Zach Paul and Elyse Smith for the latest on this next round of wintry precipitation.
