The roads didn’t look dangerous Monday morning, but many drivers found themselves sliding nonetheless, on state, county and city roads. KSMU's Jennifer Moore has details.
Angela Eden is a spokesperson for the Missouri Department of Transportation.
Eden says she expects roads to improve somewhat Monday afternoon when temperatures reach the mid-30s. Still, MODOT is encouraging drivers to allow plenty of extra travel time and to keep their feet off the gas and the brake pedals.
Temperatures are expected to get down into the 20s Monday night, then warm up Tuesday, reaching a high of 52. Brian Barjenbruch, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, says mid week, we could be looking at wintry weather conditions again.
Barjenbruch said, however, he does not expect significant accumulation from Wednesday’s precipitation.
