Four to five inches of snow New Years evening and overnight will slow motorists this morning. MODOT reports major highways in northeast Missouri are snow covered or partially snow covered early this morning. Roads in Adams County and most of western Illinois are also reported as snow covered. The snow plows have been out already around Hannibal and Quincy but streets will be slick due to packed snow and ice.
