JEFFERSON CITY - MoDOT released a "No Travel Advisory" in effect for Monday and Tuesday because of expected hazardous road conditions.

"For your safety and the safety of our crews, we ask everyone to avoid travel once this storm begins, unless it is a dire emergency," said Elizabeth Wright, MoDOT state maintenance engineer. "This will be different from last week's storm. Strong winds will blow the snow around, creating a whiteout effect that makes travel extremely hazardous."

MoDOT suggests that when travelling, you bring a cell phone and winter survival supplies. If you become stranded, call 9-1-1 and stay with your vehicle.

Missouri conditions are available at modot.org or through their app.
