Our Winter Storm Warning ended at midnight but the Wind Chill Warning is in effect until Tuesday at noon.

Along with the blowing snow and winds up to 35 miles per hour, wind chills will hit levels we haven’t seen in 30 years.

Overnight wind chill readings will be in the area of 30 to 40 below and that can mean frostbite within 30 minutes.

Local governments have opened warming shelters and encourage anyone in need, to use them.

St. Louis has police on patrol looking for homeless people still out in the cold this morning.

The call is also out to check on friends and neighbors who may have problems coping with the cold.

Most schools, many businesses and government centers have already decided to close.

We’ll have the complete list from the Spectrum Cleaning and Restoration Storm Center beginning in the 5 o’clock hour.
