It’s not the amount of snow rolling in today that has the Missouri Department of Transportation worried – it’s the timing.
Heavy snow and plunging temperatures are expected to hit the Upper Midwest this week, dropping as much as a foot of snow on the region and pushing temperatures down by as much as 40 degrees overnight.
Message to Missourians: Don’t put those winter coats in storage just yet.
Americans in much of the country will be getting a slight break from the oppressive heat on Sunday, one day after temperatures rose to above 100 degrees from the central states to the mid-Atlantic. Yet for many, the cooler temperatures won’t exactly be comfortable, falling only into the 90s.
Work slows as workers are required to take more breaks, spend less time in extreme heat.
