While Missourians awoke to single digit temperatures and below zero wind-chills today, along with varying depths of snow cover, National Weather Service Meteorologist Chris Bowman does not see this as an ongoing trend.  He says these temperatures are an anomaly, and the state should see a return to a more seasonal outlook soon.  However, he does recommend always keeping a winter car travel kit in your vehicle, including blankets, water, non-perishable food, a flashlight and batteries.
