A winter snow storm moved in to the Kansas City, MO area on 01/04/2017 bringing 2-4″ of snow across the metro area. Vehicles had trouble getting around in the quickly accumulated snow. Cars losing control, skidding out, and spinning tires was the scene this early Thursday Morning. Snow plows were out in force combating the snowy weather as road crews manned the salt trucks throughout the city. MoDOT has urged Missouri drivers to avoid travel, if possible, since the cold temperatures are making the chemicals less effective on the roadways.
