MoDOT issues travel advisory ahead of winter storm

A MoDOT spokesperson says the storm will be as challenging as two that dropped a foot of snow in late February.

The Missouri Department of Transportation has issued a travel advisory for the weekend because of anticipated snowfalls of up to three inches per hour that could make driving nearly impossible at times.
