The good luck the Jefferson City area has experienced this winter continued Monday.
With the state taking a holiday to observe Lincoln’s birthday, light traffic around Jefferson City helped keep accidents to a minimum in the morning.
By midday, there were a few more accidents, particularly on the west side of Cole County due to some heavier snowfall, but none involving major injuries were reported.
Ben Miller, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in St. Louis, said most of the area saw between 2-3 inches of snow.
“This was pretty much an average winter storm,” he said. “By Wednesday, most of this should melt as temperatures should top out in the middle 40s.”
