Forecasts indicate that the two regions of the state could see a heavy band of snow beginning Tuesday and continuing overnight.
"Just like any other day, MoDOT crews will carefully monitor weather
forecasts and road conditions throughout the Christmas holiday," said Beth Wright, MoDOT state maintenance engineer.
"We will pre-treat roadways when possible and we are prepared to send crews where they are needed to help fight the winter weather."
Snowfall in the St. Joseph area is likely to be limited to flurries.
