The Missouri Department of Transportation says it’s ready for the winter storm that’s supposed to hit the St. Louis area over Christmas.
MoDOT crews are busy pre-treating the roads, said department spokesman Drew Gates. He says if the weather allows, crews will take a break Christmas morning to spend some time with their families before the bulk of the storm hits.
A winter weather advisory is in effect until midnight. The National Weather Service says the winter storm will bring snow into Central Missouri this morning and will spread eastward across the St. Louis area during the day and continue into tonight.
