COLUMBIA — Monday's snow will likely remain west of Columbia, according to the National Weather Service.
Columbia could receive flurries, at the most, around mid-afternoon, said Butch Dye, a hydrometeorological technician with the National Weather Service in St. Louis. No ice is expected to accompany the cold conditions.
The Columbia Public Works Department is treating bridges with a mixture of beet juice and brine to prevent freezing, according to an announcement on the Public Works Facebook and Twitter accounts. Plow crews probably won't be necessary, according to the posts.
The rest of this week will likely stay cool, Dye said. The highest temperature of the week will likely be 60 degrees on Thursday. He expects it to rain periodically between Wednesday and Friday night.
