LINCOLN UNIVERSITY – Finally! An early taste of spring is on its way and not a moment too soon. On Friday, the Jefferson City area experienced a temperature above freezing for the first time in 13 days when the mercury struggled to an official 33 degrees. The National Weather Service says its going higher, maybe even to 60 by Tuesday.

On Feb. 6, 2021, an Arctic blast slid south across the Midwest, creating a plunge of temperatures and a volatile mix of weather affecting millions of Americans. Extreme cold – including a local low of -7 on Feb. 16 – and two waves of snow led to nearly two weeks of canceled classes for many mid-Missouri schools. Lincoln classes resumed on Feb. 19.

Think spring!
