JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - Due to expected hazardous conditions, the Missouri Department of Transportation is urging motorists to stay home.
The department has issued a 'no travel advisory' starting Saturday night and extending through Sunday.
The Kansas City metro is under a winter storm warning from 6 p.m. Saturday until 6 a.m. Monday. Forecasters are predicting anywhere from three to 10 inches of snow across the viewing area.
"For your safety and the safety of our crews, we're asking that once this storm hits your region of the state, you avoid travel unless it is a dire emergency," said Elizabeth Wright, MoDOT state maintenance engineer.
If you must drive, MoDOT reminds drivers to take your cell phone along with a winter care kit. If you become stranded, stay in your car and dial 911.
