ST. LOUIS – Snow began to cover some roads in northeastern Missouri Tuesday night ahead of a winter storm expected to make landfall in the St. Louis.
Trucker Rich Wagy experienced a dramatic change in weather as he headed north from St. Louis.
“It was 60 degrees when I left St. Louis and when I got to Hannibal it was 30 degrees,” he said. “It was a pretty big jump and the road was covered by the time I got home.
Wagy lives in La Grange, Mo. Snow started falling there around 6 p.m. Tuesday.
“It’s probably going to be quite cold after this so we just have to drive carefully,” said Canton resident Jacob Stephen.
MoDOT urged drivers to stay home on Wednesday. The duration of the storm is expected to lead to danger during rush hour Wednesday morning. The soldiers also warned drivers to be prepared.
“If you have the ability to work from home, that could be the perfect option,” said Missouri State Highway Patrolman Dallas Thompson. “If you have to get out, plan ahead. Know that it may take longer to get where you are going. ”
