The National Weather Service says there is a chance of record-low temperatures this week.
“Our current ‘Record Probability Tracker’ is predicting a 77 percent chance that Springfield will break the record low of 22F on Wednesday. Trends point to the probability increasing as we get closer to Wednesday,” it said.
Additionally, there is a 60-80% chance that other low-temperature records across southwest Missouri will be broken this week.
Sub-freezing temperatures will continue over much of the area into the early morning Tuesday, the National Weather Service said Monday.
For those areas that did not receive a hard freeze Monday morning in south central Missouri, a hard freeze will occur tonight.
Unseasonably cold temperatures will persist through Wednesday night. Wind chills are expected to dip into the 10- to 15-degree range.
