(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) is recommending limited travel Saturday because of another winter storm set to move through the area.

Saturday morning, MoDOT sent out a message urging people to pay close attention to the weather forecast regarding the anticipation of another winter storm.

Crews have been working since Friday clearing the roads from that day's winter storm.

More wintry weather is expected to begin late Saturday afternoon and evening that will bring up to four inches of snow and light freezing drizzle near Kansas City.

Travelers hitting the roads Saturday night are urged to leave early and take it slow.

It is also recommended that drivers stay updated with road conditions via MoDOT's Traveler Information Map which can be found by clicking here.

The National Weather Service has a Winter Weather Advisory in effect for northwest Missouri until 6 a.m. Sunday morning.

Clouds will slowly build back into the area today. Clouds will linger overnight as a cold front moves through and the winds will pick up out of the northwest at 5 to 15 mph. That front will bring us a breezy northerly wind for your Wednesday as well as some cold temperatures. Highs will struggle to warm into the lower 20 on Wednesday, but wind chills will only feel like the single digits during the afternoon. Thursday will be the coldest day of the week. Wind chills still start out sub zero Thursday morning, with temperatures only making it into the teens by the afternoon. Temperatures will slowly start to recover by the weekend.
