LINCOLN UNIVERSITY – It’s over. Well, almost. The winter-weary folks at the National Weather Service say the massive Arctic blast gripping the Show-Me-State will begin to lift in the next couple of days. Expect slowly rising temps through the weekend and next week, with highs in the upper 40s and low 50s by Tuesday.
Will this be the last snow of the winter season? Probably not, say the experts. But most agree we won’t see another round of record-setting lows anytime soon. In Kansas City, a six-day string of single-digit temps broke a record set in 1899. Snow falling south of Dallas. Sea turtles freezing on Gulf of Mexico beaches.
It’s over. Almost.
