COLUMBIA, Mo. - Information from the National Weather Service (NWS) in St. Louis indicates that a significant winter weather event is possible for much of Missouri, including Boone County. A Winter Storm Watch has been issued from Saturday evening through late Sunday night.
With the possibility of five to nine inches of snowfall by early Monday morning, Public Safety Joint Communications discourages unnecessary travel once the storm moves into the area. Motorists who must be out are reminded to leave early for their destination, slow down, steer and brake gently, and allow plenty of room between vehicles.
