COLUMBIA — A storm system expected to reach Columbia Friday at daybreak and last until Saturday morning may bring two to four inches of snow.

“We are expecting that things will be OK today and through tonight, but as snow moves in, it will cause trouble for travel," Mark Britt, a meteorologist from the National Weather Service, said. "(People) should allow more time for their destination. They should drive slowly and leave more space for vehicles around them."

The same storm system will affect the entire state, with wide snowfall across much of Missouri, Britt said. Southeastern and Southern Missouri are likely to see a mix of sleet and snow.

Last Christmas, Columbia saw half an inch of snow and temperatures bottoming out at 16 degrees.
