LINCOLN UNIVERSITY – A winter weather event arrived on campus Saturday as the first week of the spring 2022 semester headed into an extended MLK holiday weekend. According to the National Weather Service, central Missouri received 2-4 inches of snow by early to mid-Saturday morning before moving eastward. A warming trend will likely melt much of the frozen precipitation before students return to classes on Tuesday.
Sunday’s high is expected to be slightly above freezing, with temps reaching into the 50s on Tuesday. A bitter cold front will slide into the area Wednesday, bringing single-digit lows Wednesday night.
