Ice accumulations could reach a tenth of an inch on Sunday across much of central and eastern Missouri, including Boone County and Columbia, according to a winter weather advisory issued for the area by the National Weather Service on Sunday morning.

According to the National Weather Service, a mix of rain, sleet and freezing rain is possible from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday. There is a 100 percent chance of precipitation going into the evening.

The advisory for Boone County began at 9 a.m. Sunday and is expected to last until midnight.

The Columbia Public Works Department had an eight-person plow crew on call throughout Saturday night, monitoring the road conditions. The crew worked to pretreat designated snow routes throughout Columbia, according to the department's website. A 22-person crew is also scheduled to be on-call throughout the day and night Sunday.

An eight-person crew was also scheduled to be sent out at 8 a.m. Sunday to prepare for the potential winter weather, according to a tweet Saturday evening from the Public Works Department.

The roads are expected to become slick throughout the day. The Missouri Department of Transportation urges all residents to drive slowly and avoid traveling on the roads if possible, only doing so when absolutely necessary.

"Even a little precipitation can cause slippery roads, so drivers need to be alert and drive for the conditions," Jason Shafer, a MoDOT Central District maintenance engineer, said in a statement Friday.
