(KMOV.com) -- As another winter storm threatens the St. Louis area during a winter that doesn’t seem to ever stop, officials with the Missouri Department of Transportation have issued a no travel advisory for Tuesday.

Missouri motorists are encouraged to stay home for the duration of the winter storm expected to hit the area Tuesday evening, which could possibly drop six inches on the St. Louis area.

“For your safety and the safety of our crews,” said MoDOT’s Elizabeth Wright, “we’re asking that once this storm hits your region of the state, you avoid travel unless it is a dire emergency.”

MoDOT says if a driver does become stranded to stay inside the vehicle and call 911.
