Snow began falling before the morning commute Wednesday, causing slick road conditions and forcing a number of schools to cancel class or move to a virtual learning day.
A winter weather advisory is in effect until noon for all of southwest Missouri.
The National Weather Service says we’re expecting one to two inches of accumulation in the Springfield area and areas along Highway 65, with two to three inches in the far eastern Ozarks.
Areas along the I-49 corridor west of Springfield are looking at 1/2 to one inch.
How Local Schools Handled The Snow:
Fair Grove, Nixa, Miller, Logan-Rogersville, Shell Knob, Strafford and Spokane are among a number of districts having an AMI (Alternate Methods of Instruction) day, while schools like Bolivar, Billings, Chadwick, Clever, El Dorado Springs, Forsyth, Marshfield, Ozark, Republic, and Sparta are closed altogether.
