ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - MoDOT crews have been out since midnight trying to stay ahead of the storm. But, temperatures continue to make a big difference for road crews in Missouri. MoDOT expects to be dealing with this heavy wet snow well into Monday.

The Highway Patrol reports a lot of slip and slide off crashes. None of them are serious. These occurred on i-255 in South St. Louis County near Lindbergh.

MoDOT crews were able to lay down salt just before snow hit the metro area and that has made it easier to plow.

The biggest disruption so far occurred on eastbound I-44 East of the Union exit in Franklin County. The eastbound lanes were closed for several hours after two tractor trailers jack-knived and blocked the interstate.

A word of caution, there is a lot of sloppy slush on the roads, so stay back from the car in front of you. Even passing cars can throw it up on your windshield, temporarily blocking your vision.
