        St. Louis City and County officials are urging residents to stay out of the cold as temperatures drop to extreme lows on Sunday and Monday (January 6, 2014).

        Snowy roads, gusting winds, and bad visibility should keep drivers off the road on Sunday. Then, Sunday night, lows will drop to well below zero.

        St. Louis County spokeswoman Pat Washington says the weather requires special vigilance.

        "Certainly check on elderly, check on your neighbors, check on people who have health issues. And be sure to take care of your pets," Washington advises. "Use precaution and a little bit of common sense, and don't be outside if you don't have to be out."

        Because lows on Sunday and Monday nights are expected to drop to around -7, St. Louis County has activated two emergency overnight warming centers at St. Vincent's Community Center and Afton Community Center. St. Louis City has also opened an overnight shelter for the homeless, at the rec center on 12th and Park, through Tuesday night.

        Other warming centers, including many county libraries, will be open during the day.

        Residents should call 211 to access services. For emergencies, including suspected hypothermia, call 911.
