The first snow the season is expected Thursday morning and even though it probably won’t amount to much, drivers are being warned to ready for a slower-than-normal commute:
Missouri State Highway Patrol Captain Tim Hull says even though forecasters say the Lake of the Ozarks probably won’t see much more than flurries. snowflakes could be flying and motorists need to prepare:
If you are going on a longer trip, Hull says to pack a winter driving kit that includes gloves, tools, blankets, non-perishable food and some sand or kitty litter for traction if your vehicle does slide off of the road. And, he reminds drivers, the most important thing they can do is buckle up.
