Columbia College Cancels Classes, MU Goes Remote As Bitter Cold Temperatures Descend Across Missouri

Feb 15, 2021

Bitter cold temperatures and dangerous wind chill levels are expected across much of the central United States at the start of the week, and Missouri is no exception. The National Weather Service has issued wind chill warnings for Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa and Missouri at least through today because a blast of artic air will dominate the weather throughout the region. Several inches of snow is also expected to fall across much of Missouri today. The Columbia Missourian reports Columbia College's main campus has canceled classes today because of concerns about the winter weather. MU announced that it will shift to remote operations today, meaning all classes will be held remotely. The city of Columbia will extend its temporary overnight warming center through Thursday as well.
