Holiday Travel Conditions Look Good for the Area
AAA says that 48.5 million people will hit the road for Thanksgiving travel -- the most in over a decade. If you're traveling around the Show-Me state, conditions look pretty good until the end of the weekend.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reminds everyone that every driver needs to be committed to turning off their cell phone, following all traffic laws, and staying sober when they are behind the wheel.
Whether you’re on the road visiting family and friends or out shopping for a good deal, please make sure your car is in good condition before you travel. It is also important that you are well rested before you start driving. Remember: There is never a reason to speed, drive aggressively, or drive impaired.
A reminder that Missouri State Highway Patrol will be participating in Operation C.A.R.E., enforcing all traffic laws, and available to assist the public.
Overall, it looks like we will have pretty good weather for the holiday weekend. The focus remains on Sunday though, as chances increase for winter weather. It is still too early for details, but there is increasing potential for accumulating snowfall Sunday. Additionally, it is looking like a very windy day. So, keep checking back for forecast updates, especially those who have travel plans Sunday.
