COLUMBIA — The 310 day streak of consecutive days without any measurable snow ended when a winter storm moved into the area Thursday morning.
Snow accumulation at Columbia Regional Airport was measured at 1 inch by noon Thursday, said Doug Tilly with The National Weather Service in St. Louis.
High winds caused scattered outages throughout Columbia.
Columbia Regional Airport experienced power outages during a few periods of the morning, according to a Department of Public Works news release. The airport advised passengers to check for delayed flights or cancellations.
Providence Road and Business Loop 70 had outages that lasted about an hour before power was restored, Connie Kacprowicz with Public Works said.
Other scattered outages were reported in the area around Blackfoot Road near routes E and B. Work was expected to continue until those areas had restored power, Tony Cunningham the manager at the Electric Distribution Center in Columbia said.
Tilly urged people to be aware of the possibility for water to freeze as the temperatures drop throughout the day.
