...WINTRY PRECIPITATION EXPECTED FRIDAY...SIGNIFICANT WINTER
STORM POSSIBLE FROM SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY NIGHT...

TWO PERIODS OF WINTER WEATHER ARE EXPECTED TO IMPACT SOUTHEASTERN
KANSAS AND THE MISSOURI OZARKS OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS. ON
FRIDAY...A WINTRY MIX OF SNOW...SLEET...FREEZING RAIN AND RAIN WILL
OVERSPREAD THE AREA STARTING DURING THE MORNING HOURS. TEMPERATURES
WILL INITIALLY BE AT OR BELOW FREEZING...ALLOWING THE ACCUMULATION
OF SNOW AND SLEET DURING THE MORNING HOURS. UP TO AN INCH OF SNOW
AND SLEET...AND A GLAZE OF FREEZING RAIN WILL BE POSSIBLE BEFORE
TEMPERATURES RISE ABOVE FREEZING DURING THE AFTERNOON.

FOG...DRIZZLE...AND OCCASIONAL FREEZING DRIZZLE ARE THEN EXPECTED
FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY. IF FREEZING DRIZZLE DEVELOPS...AN
ADDITIONAL GLAZE OF ICE WILL BE POSSIBLE ON ELEVATED AND EXPOSED
SURFACES.

CONFIDENCE IS NOW BEGINNING TO INCREASE THAT A POTENTIALLY
SIGNIFICANT WINTER STORM WILL THEN IMPACT THE REGION FROM SATURDAY
NIGHT INTO SUNDAY NIGHT. WHILE EXACT PRECIPITATION TYPE AND AMOUNTS
FOR A GIVEN LOCATION ARE DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE AT THIS
DISTANCE...THERE ARE INCREASING INDICATIONS THAT ACCUMULATIONS OF
SLEET AND FREEZING RAIN MAY BE SIGNIFICANT IN NATURE.

FOLLOWING THIS POSSIBLE WINTER STORM...BITTERLY COLD TEMPERATURES
WILL THEN IMPACT THE REGION DURING THE EARLY PART OF NEXT WEEK.
READINGS 20 TO 30 DEGREES BELOW AVERAGE ARE EXPECTED WITH HIGH
TEMPERATURES IN THE TEENS AND TWENTIES AND LOWS IN THE SINGLE
DIGITS.

INTERESTS ACROSS SOUTHEASTERN KANSAS AND THE MISSOURI OZARKS ARE
ENCOURAGED TO REMAIN WEATHER AWARE THROUGH THE WEEKEND...AND CHECK
BACK OFTEN FOR THE LATEST FORECAST INFORMATION.
