JEFFERSON CITY - Parts of Jefferson City received close to eight inches of snow when the winter storm rolled across Missouri, but the winter weather may not be done in the area.

Current weather predictions call for cold temperatures, rain and a possible chance of some snow early next week Monday into Tuesday.

MoDOT crews are still working 12 hour shifts due to yesterday's storm that spilled on Missouri.

Snow plows continue to stop by the Jefferson City maintenance building to re-fuel and load supplies so they can get back out on the roads.

"What we are doing right now is we are coming off one storm and prepping for another," said assistant district maintenance engineer Jason Shafer. "So part of what we are doing for instance where all the snow is in Columbia, we are going through this weekend and pushing it all back so if we have to plow snow again Monday or Tuesday, it's got somewhere to go."

The City of Columbia Public Works began plowing the residential streets beginning at the center of town and working their way out.

For the next measurable snowfall, Columbia Public Works will begin at the outer boundaries and work toward the center of town.
