Wet Wintry Mix of Weather in KJEL Listening Areas

A wet, wintry mix of rain and snow is expected to impact motorists this morning, and lasting through the rest of the day. The Missouri Department of Transportation urges all drivers to be prepared for changing road conditions in the KJEL listening areas, especially as many are returning from the holidays. Motorists should use extra caution during and after the precipitation: leave early and slow down for the conditions, buckle up, and avoid distractions. Be cautious on elevated surfaces such as bridges and overpasses. MoDOT will have crews clearing roadways as quickly as possible. If you encounter a snowplow on the road, always give crews room to work. Do not tailgate or try to pass. Snowplow operators are reacting to the road ahead of them with a very limited field of vision so that you may see them, but they may not see you. For more information on road impacts due to the winter weather mix you can look at the MoDOT traveler information map, and that can be found at My Ozarks Online.com.
