Residents should be careful when traveling over the weekend, or consider staying home as a round of heavy snow blankets the area again.

A winter storm watch is in effect from 6 p.m. tonight until 3 p.m. Sunday.

According to the National Weather Service, a “band of quickly accumulating snow,” will move through Missouri this evening through Sunday, bringing four to seven inches of snow for most of the metro area and possibly more in other areas of the state. The Weather Service cautions that blowing snow will also reduce visibilities at times on Sunday.

Hazardous travel is expected late this evening through at least Sunday afternoon, and the Missouri Department of Transportation has issued a no-travel advisory for the duration of the storm.

In addition to the snow, residents should also make preparations for the accompanying cold, as temperatures will be settling between highs of 16 to 19 degrees, according to the Weather Service.

The Truman Library announced Friday afternoon that it would be closed Sunday due to the snowy forecast.
