COLUMBIA — Forecasters are expecting a 50 percent chance of snow late Wednesday morning and early afternoon after two days of record warm weather in mid-Missouri.

According to the National Weather Service, the temperature will fall to about 27 degrees by 5 p.m. The service is forecasting the possibility of snow through Thursday night, when the overnight low could reach 8 degrees.

Tuesday's high was 70, exceeding the previous record of 64 in 2008. More than an inch of rain was measured at Columbia Regional Airport. Monday's high of 77 tied for the record for all of January recorded in 1950 and 1909, according to a previous Missourian article.
