Lots of schools in the Ozarks, including Springfield Public Schools, are closed today in anticipation of a winter storm that's headed our way.  Andy Foster, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Springfield, says snow will begin to fall this morning causing travel conditions to deteriorate.

"Looks like we'll see a range of two to five inches across the entire area--the higher amounts from I-44 and points northward, so just a good dose of snow for the entire area," he said.

And get ready for a bout of cold weather that will stick around for a few days.

"It's going to stay cold for awhile--more bitter cold as we head through the rest of the week, wind chills well below zero later tonight and again as we go into Wednesday night and maybe some light snow again this weekend," he said.

A winter weather advisory is in effect through six tomorrow morning.  And the Missouri Department of Transportation has issued a winter travel advisory for today.
