COLUMBIA — Forecasters were expecting more snow and bone-chilling temperatures for the upcoming work week.
Laura Kanofsky, forecast meteorologist for the National Weather Service in St. Louis, said on Sunday that 1 to 3 inches of snow was expected beginning Tuesday night and continuing into Wednesday morning.
The intensity of the episode won't be comparable to what Columbia witnessed last week, but forecasters were predicting lows in the single digits Monday night through Thursday night. The lowest reading in the forecast was -4 degrees for Thursday night.
But there are warmer temperatures to look forward to next weekend.
“We are predicting 40 degrees for the upcoming Saturday and 45 on Sunday,” Kanofsky said. “It would be really welcome."
