COLUMBIA — Temperatures dropped Tuesday and Wednesday, after an unseasonably high temperature of 70 degrees Monday. This broke the record high for that date, up one degree from the previous high recorded in 1990.

The chillier weather offered a variety of views in Columbia as residents donned warm winter clothes.

The chilly weather doesn't stop Ethan Payer and the rest of the MU lacrosse team from practicing Wednesday afternoon. The team's first match of the season is against Missouri Baptist University on Feb. 25.
