UPDATE (9:35 a.m.): Campus has been closed for Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2021.

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY – Additional winter weather has created a mess for Mid-Missouri motorists, creating a temporary delay until 10 a.m. for the start of classes on Wednesday.

Temperatures in the low teens has hampered local, county, and state efforts to remove ice and snow from area roadways. Pockets of snow and freezing rain moved into the area early Wednesday morning, just in time to hamper the a.m. commute into the Capital City.

The National Weather Service says it’s going to get worse before it gets better. Highs on Thursday might reach 20 degrees – that will feel balmy compared to the next seven days. Friday the low will be about 5 above, Saturday near zero with a high of 10, and continued single-digit temps until next Wednesday.
