Snow hitting the Lake of the Ozarks this Friday, making road conditions unreasonable.

Residents phoning into KRMS talk of slick road conditions that feel like “Driving on Ice” and numerous vehicles found in ditches along the roadside.

Despite the call for snow, no schools called out in the morning…but some have since called for an early release.

A winter weather advisory also has been issued into the evening.
