Thanksgiving travel will be getting more dicey as this day goes along. Snow is sweeping into the state from the west and south and is moving north and east. Kansas City already has been hit hard. Five inches of snowfall was reported early this morning near Kansas City International Airport, with totals exjpected to reach seven to nine inches before it stops. Two to four inches is more common. The National Weather Service says the snow will go at least as far east as Rolla, Cuba and St. Louis along the I-44 corridor, Jefferson City, Mexico and Hannibal, with the heaviest snowfall during the day – three to six inches – in the Columbia and Jefferson City areas and then northeast. It will be a wet, heavy snow that could break some tree limbs and pull down some powerlines. The National Weather Service says roads, especially bridges and overpasses, could become hazardous.
