Winter Weather Advisory Sunday Afternoon Through Monday Morning

A mix of freezing drizzle, light sleet and light snow is expected in the Ozarks from late Sunday afternoon into Monday morning.

Late Sunday afternoon, numerous crashes were reported in Springfield, including a jackknifed tanker that closed the ramp from northbound Highway 65 to I-44.

The tanker was later moved to the right shoulder, clearing all lanes.

Most of the crashes from mid afternoon had been cleared by Sunday evening.

The National Weather Service says total snow and sleet accumulations up to a half inch and ice accumulations of less than one tenth of an inch will be possible.

The advisory runs from 4 p.m. Sunday through 9 a.m. Monday for much of southwest Missouri.

Forecasters say roads, and especially bridges and overpasses, can become slick and hazardous.

Plan on slippery road conditions for the morning commute Monday.

Slow down and use caution when driving, and watch your first few steps taken on stairs, sidewalks and driveways.

These surfaces could be icy and slippery, increasing your risk for a fall or injury.
