...WORSENING TRAVEL CONDITIONS THIS AFTERNOON...
WINDS WILL QUICKLY INCREASE FROM THE NORTH LATE THIS MORNING AND THIS
AFTERNOON WITH OCCASIONAL GUSTS TO 40 MPH. THIS WILL LEAD TO
SUBSTANTIAL BLOWING AND DRIFTING OF SNOW...WITH VISIBILITIES DROPPING
TO BELOW A MILE AT TIMES ESPECIALLY ACROSS FAR NORTHERN MISSOURI
WHERE 6 TO 10 INCHES OF SNOW HAS ALREADY FALLEN. BLOWING SNOW WILL
ALSO MAKE IT VERY DIFFICULT TO MAINTAIN CLEAR ROADWAYS.
IN ADDITION...RAPIDLY FALLING TEMPERATURES INTO THE LOWER AND MIDDLE
20S THIS AFTERNOON WILL CAUSE ANY SLUSH AND WATER TO FREEZE
ESPECIALLY ON ANY UNTREATED ROADWAYS AS WELL AS BRIDGES AND
OVERPASSES. THIS MAY RESULT IN VERY HAZARDOUS AND ICY CONDITIONS IN
SPOTS.
MOTORISTS SHOULD USE EXTREME CAUTION IF TRAVELING THIS AFTERNOON AND
BE PREPARED FOR QUICKLY DETERIORATING TRAVEL CONDITIONS.
