COLUMBIA — Snow was beginning to accumulate on roads in Central Missouri late Monday morning.

At 11:30 a.m. Monday, a spokeswoman for Troop F of the the Missouri State Highway Patrol in Jefferson City said there was a "light dusting" of snow on highways in Boone and Cooper counties.

A traveler's map at the website of the Missouri Department of Transportation reported snow-covered roads in western and northwestern Missouri late Monday morning, with Interstate 70 west of Columbia listed as partly covered with snow.

City snow crews were preparing for the forecast of up to 6 inches of snow. At 11 a.m. Monday, Jill Stedem of the Columbia Public Works Department said there were no city plows out, but employees were monitoring snowfall and the temperatures of streets and bridges. Eighteen plows and the regular crew of about 30 were ready for dispatch, she said.
