Electric co-ops prepare for weather-related outages
Members urged to plan ahead should power be interrupted
The two storm systems that are expected to make an impact across the region for Friday and the weekend remain on track.
The first will bring a light rain/snow mix to the area late Friday. It is the weaker of the two systems and any accumulations should be minimal, generally under an inch.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for the entire state from 6 p.m. Saturday through 6 a.m. Monday due to the second and stronger winter storm expected to impact the southeastern portion of Missouri in particular.
