COLUMBIA — The National Weather Service warned Tuesday that moderate to heavy snowfall would spread across the region over the next two days.
Most locations will see 3 to 6 inches of snow beginning late Wednesday afternoon. A winter weather advisory is in effect from 6 p.m. Wednesday through 6 p.m. Thursday.
The heaviest snow is expected Wednesday night and Thursday morning, with most accumulation along and north of Interstate 70.
The cold ground will lead to quick snow accumulation, especially on less-traveled or untreated roads, which could become hazardous.
According to the weather service, three storms have already brought Columbia 11.2 inches of snow this winter.
