Park Hills Street Department Is Ready For Snow

(Park Hills) Extremely cold weather will be the main concern later this week but accumulating snow is also a possibility for southeast Missouri.

Stacey Easter is the mayor of Park Hills.

She says a plan is in place to keep city streets plowed in case we do get a few inches of snow.

The latest from the National Weather Service says snow could start falling Thursday morning and possibly continue through late Thursday night with 1 to 5 inches possible.

Right now, the highest amounts and best chances for snow is the northern half of Jefferson County, the northwest corner of Washington County and a portion of Crawford County, along and north of I-44.

Those areas have a 70-percent chance for snow.

A 40 to 70-percent chance for snow covers Dent County, most of Crawford and Washington, the southern part of Jefferson, western Iron County and the northern portions of St. Francois and Ste. Genevieve counties.

South of those areas, there is a 10 to 40-percent chance of accumulating snowfall.
