JEFFERSON CITY – A complex weather system is expected to spread snow and ice across much of Missouri beginning Sunday morning and continuing into Monday. The Missouri Department of Transportation is recommending that people delay their Monday morning commute as the system has the potential to produce ice accumulations ranging from 0.1 to 0.5 inches in some areas. Freezing rain and ice are predicted to move into the northwest portion of Missouri in the early morning hours and move across the state creating the potential for a dangerous morning rush hour.

Drivers traveling to the Kansas City Chiefs game at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday will want to use extreme caution. Snow is expected to move into the state early Sunday morning and is likely to continue throughout the day making travel after the game more challenging than travel to the game. Snow accumulations ranging from 1 to 5 inches are possible in the north and central parts of the state.

MoDOT workers are treating roads and bridges in advance of the storm and drivers are urged to keep informed of the rapidly changing forecast. Persons who must travel should allow extra time to reach their destination. Remember that even a trace of freezing precipitation can cause slippery roads. To check road conditions please go to MoDOT’s Traveler Information Map at The map is also available as a free app for Apple and Android devices.

MoDOT also provides road condition information at 888-ASK-MODOT (888-275-6636) around-the-clock.
