Winter Storm Warning Canceled; Dangerously Cold Temps Remain
Snowfall in the Hannibal-Quincy area came up short compared to original predictions, but who's complaining?
The Hannibal Filter Plant reported a total of 2 inches as of 5 a.m. this morning. The National Weather Service has cancelled the Winter Storm Warning and replaced it with a Winter Weather Advisory effective until 6 p.m. Additional accumulations of 1-2 inches of snow are possible this afternoon.
The temperatures, though, leave plenty of room for complaints as we begin March. Dangerously cold temperatures has resulted in a Wind Chill Advisory being issued for the area from 6 p.m. Sunday until 10 a.m. Monday. Wind chills as low as 23 degrees below zero are possible as actual temperatures plummet to near 5 below zero tonight. North winds at 10 to 15 miles an hour, gusting to 25 miles an hour will pose a danger for humans and animals. Dress warmly and cover exposed skin if you venture out.
