Although the roads may appear to be clear, spotty slick conditions can occur, especially on elevated surfaces. Motorists are encouraged to keep their speeds low to prevent slide-offs, which are still a possibility in wet conditions.
Temperatures are expected to drop below 32 degrees at 7 p.m. Wednesday and are not expected to rise above freezing until Friday. Public Works crews will be observing moisture levels on roadways during this period to monitor for drying and a potential refreeze.

Contact: Christian Tabak, PolicePIO@CoMo.gov
create new emailThe Columbia Police Department is continuing to respond to calls as usual and asks that you help keep emergency lines clear by reporting non-injury crashes via 311.
The Department urges drivers to use caution while on the road. Slow down, increase distance between cars, accelerate and decelerate slowly, and wear a seatbelt. Be sure to clear your vehicle's windows of any snow and ice before driving.
Residents should also not leave vehicles running while unattended. While you may be trying to warm your vehicle or defrost your windshield, a vehicle left running unattended for even a few minutes is at risk for theft.
