Be Prepared for More Winter Weather

LEE’S SUMMIT, MO- More winter weather is expected this weekend. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the KC Metro from 6 p.m. on Friday, January 18, 2019 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, January 19, 2019. A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Expect slippery roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.  Total snow accumulations of 1 to 4 inches and a light glaze of ice are expected. Wind gusts as high as 40 mph will cause blowing snow and limited visibility.

Only drive if necessary. Remove snow and ice from your tailpipe before starting your car, and check regularly if idling. Clean all snow and ice from your car before driving. Have an emergency supply kit in your car.

Dress in warm clothing, stay dry, prevent prolonged exposure to cold and wind, and avoid overexertion clearing/shoveling snow. Overexertion can lead to a medical emergency.

Monitor local news and alerts for emergency information and instructions.
