KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV/AP) -
What a difference a day makes: A day after much of Missouri basked in spring-like weather, the reality of the pending winter set in on Thursday with the arrival of bitter cold and a concerning mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain.
Many areas of the Show-Me State were under winter weather warnings. Southwest Missouri seemed especially targeted for foul weather, with up to 8 inches of snow possible by Friday evening.
Highs were mostly expected to reach only into the 30s, a sharp decline from highs in the 60s in many places just 24 hours earlier. Forecasters expect the frigid weather to last for several days.
By mid-morning, snow was falling in southern Missouri. Other areas were getting freezing rain or sleet, but no major wrecks in the Kansas City area were immediately reported.
Sean Demory, spokesman for the Kansas City Public Works Department, said crews treated bridges, emergency routes and high spots with salt brine Wednesday night.
Bridge crews started checking them again about 3:30 a.m. Thursday.
Demory said crews are going to do the same thing Thursday night to prepare for another possibility of snow Friday morning.
Kimberly Qualls, spokeswoman with the Kansas Department of Transportation, said crews treated roads in Wyandotte, Leavenworth and Johnson counties.
She said crews had not pretreated the roads before the snowfall, and because of the light dusting, crews did not need to plow.
Among the multiple wrecks reported, a rollover accident on Winner Road over Blue River in Kansas City, which is west of Interstate 435, was reported about 5:45 a.m.
Another rollover accident was reported about the same time on southbound I-35 at Front Street.
While not all areas of the metro have bands of ice and snow, authorities say is important to allow extra time to get where drivers need to go.
Missouri Department of Transportation cautions drivers to slow down, expect bridges, overpasses and hills to be ice-covered and slick, and make braking and steering movements gradually as all drivers relearn winter driving skills.
The further east drivers might go, the fewer problems they may encounter.
