COLUMBIA — As residents finish digging out from Thursday's snowstorm, there may be more winter weather on the way for Columbia.

As of Sunday afternoon, the National Weather Service predicted potential snowfall levels of 4 to 6 inches in the Columbia and Boone County areas.

This next storm is expected to arrive late Monday, bringing a mix of sleet and snow that will then change to snow early Tuesday morning, said Mark Britt, a forecaster with the National Weather Service.

While the storm's trajectory has remained stable the past few days, the amount of snow Columbia receives could change if the storm's path does. Track the storm here.

"If the storm moves farther north that would mean less snow. If it moves south that would mean more snow for Columbia," Britt said. 

Columbia's winter storm watch for Monday night and early Tuesday remains in effect, he said. To be prepared, residents should go through with their normal winter storm preparations and those looking to travel northwest, especially on Interstate 70 toward Kansas City, should take extra precautions.

Full crews were out Sunday morning to clean up and touch up Columbia streets in preparation for snow on Monday, a Columbia Public works news release said.

As of Saturday afternoon, 90 percent of all Columbia roads had been plowed, the release said.
