Icy roads Monday morning for parts of mid-Missouri

Warmer air will move in from the southwest late Sunday night along with rain which will spread over the area after midnight. Temperatures will be near or below freezing as the rain moves in which will freeze as it hits objects and roads.

A glaze of ice will form by daybreak Monday where temperatures are near or below freezing with higher amounts of ice farther northeast in areas which will stay below freezing longer. There is a Freezing Rain Advisory (see map in Related Content) in northeastern Missouri until noon Monday for the possibility of a tenth of an inch of ice.

A glazing of ice is possible from near Vienna to Jefferson City to Boonville and points to the northeast by daybreak. Areas to the northeast will have higher ice accumulation. This will cause ice to form on untreated roads. Also, although air temperatures may be above freezing, road surfaces will be slightly colder and ice will remain on roads for a period of time as temperatures warm. Morning commuters should use caution and prepare for slick roads, allow extra time to get to your destination and keep a safe distance between other vehicles. Use extra caution on bridges and curves.
