mid missouri weather

Some Missouri schools are calling off classes for Wednesday because of plummeting temperatures.

The extreme cold and record-breaking temperatures are crawling into a swath of states spanning from North Dakota to Missouri and into Ohio after a powerful snowstorm pounded the region earlier this week. Much of Missouri is under a wind chill warning or advisory, with wind chills expected to drop as low as minus 30 degrees (-22 Celsius) Wednesday. The National Weather Service says the cold could cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 30 minutes.

Forecasters say severe storms are likely Monday in parts of the Southern and Great Plains states, with tornadoes and very large hail a possibility in some areas.
