COLUMBIA — After a slippery morning commute, the area should expect another round of snow late Tuesday morning and early afternoon.

The winter weather advisory posted by the National Weather Service remained in effect through 6 p.m. The Weather Service called for areas of snow, sleet and freezing rain or drizzle to continue early Tuesday morning, but said more steady precipitation should be expected late Tuesday morning and in the early afternoon.

The forecast for Columbia calls for an additional 1 inch of snow from the system that caused far greater problems in counties to the south. A cold Tuesday night is forecast after the snow ends with a low of about 6 degrees.

At mid-morning, the state Department of Transportation traveler's map showed major state roads covered or partly covered with snow and ice from north of Columbia through southern Missouri.
