ST. LOUIS (AP) — Residents throughout much of Missouri and Kansas will be dealing with potentially dangerous weather conditions on Tuesday, but in wildly varying forms.
Freezing rain was falling in parts of Kansas Tuesday morning, with several accidents reported. Schools in some parts of Kansas and western Missouri extended the President’s Day weekend to a fourth day.
Icy roads were also in the forecast in the Kansas City area and elsewhere in western Missouri.
On the eastern side of the state, St. Louis-area residents were seeing spring-like temperatures, but volatile conditions. High temperatures were expected to reach into the low-70s in St. Louis, but thunderstorms are likely.
Temperatures in eastern Missouri are expected to fall quickly through the night, with highs only in the 30s to around 40 on Wednesday.
