Snow Continues to Fall in the Ozarks

Many area roadways are covered or partly covered, and the Springfield Police Department is on emergency status for accident response.  If all vehicles are operable, the accident is non-injury and no alcohol or drugs are involved, you're asked to make a walk-in accident report.

Megan Terry is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Springfield.

"We have a large area of snow spreading across the area.  There is some sleet mixing in mainly along and south of Highway 60, so we do expect the snow and the snow/sleet mix to continue through the day," she said.

According to Terry, three to five inches of accumulation is expected along the I-44 corridor with higher amounts in central and west central Missouri.
