Light snow was still falling shortly before 8 a.m. in Cape Girardeau but had stopped by around 10:30 a.m.. Since snow began falling early Sunday, less than an inch accumulated.
Though there was little accumulation, the snow led to several accidents, including a 10-car accident on Interstate 55 in Cape Girardeau around 7 p.m. Sunday. Some snow remained on local roads this morning.
On its online road conditions map at http://maps.modot.mo.gov/travelerinforma... the Missouri Department of Transportation reported I-55 was partly covered from north of Perryville to south of Portageville, Mo., just before 8:30 a.m. Highway 34 west of Jackon was covered and Highway 72 was partly covered. By 11 a.m., MoDOT was reporting those roads had been cleared.
