(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)  Campsites and RV parks are expecting a spike in travelers for the summer.  

The pandemic is sweeping through the summer, but summer vacation is not being put on pause for many families.  Travelers are predicted to take road trips over flying to avoid getting sick. 

Beacon RV-Sales is one campsite that is constantly full.  Many of their customers are long-term, but for the sites they have open, they are a revolving door of visitors.

"It's going to be busy," said Annie Ray, park host of Beacon RV-Sales.  "I mean we have reservations for most of the summer.  It's just a revolving door."

Snow showers have left the area and we saw anywhere from 2-4 inches of snow. Surface temperatures for the most part remain above freezing so accumulations were mostly on elevated and grassy surfaces. Skies slowly cleared throughout the day with temperatures warming into the mid to upper 40s. Conditions look to dry out and slowly warm throughout the next few days. Rain chances will return mainly through the morning hours on Friday with temperatures back in the 60s. Temperatures will continue to warm through the weekend with highs back in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Temperatures will be close to 80s for the beginning of next week under mostly sunny skies.
