Friday morning lows may drop below zero

Arctic air will prevent highs from getting much warmer than the lower teens Thursday afternoon. Temperatures will fall into the single digits quickly Thursday evening as winds diminish under a clear sky.

By Friday morning, temperatures will be near zero for the entire area. Snow-covered parts of Mid-Missouri, especially along and north of I-70, will have the best chances of dropping below zero.

Columbia has not dropped below zero since February 10, 2011. The temperature plummeted to -10 that morning.
