Winter weather is here and with it comes a Winter Weather advisory in effect for the entire Lake of the Ozarks Region.

We are expecting snow accumulations and very cold wind chills.

“The thing with this one is it’s going to be prolonged, like all the way through next week. We’re going to see an arctic high move in, and that’s going to keep things cold.”

Meteorologist Megan Mulford with the KRMS Weatherolgy Weather Center.

She says there will also be some rain, but the biggest concern is the artic blast behind this system.

“We really start to feel that cold air as we start to head into Monday night, into Tuesday and all through next week.”

Those temperatures are expected to have wind chills at or below O at this time.

Mulford recommends stocking your home and your car with emergency supplies

“You definitely want to make sure you have an emergency kit in your car, gloves, hat, extra clothes, warmer hand packets, flares…just in case anything happens and you’re stuck waiting on assistance.”

She also recommends bringing in any pets.

“If it’s too cold for you outside, then it’s too cold for your animals. You definitely want to bring them inside during this cold snap, or if you have a shelter outside….make sure it is very warm for them.”

Additional details on the arctic blast can be seen below from the weather service.
