Weather hazards expected...

Limited lightning risk.

Significant fog risk.


Isolated thunderstorms will be possible this afternoon through
tonight. Small hail and cloud to ground lightning will be the main

Versailles, Missouri line. Ice accumulations of a thin glaze up to
a tenth of an inch are expected. Untreated roadways may become

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.

Freezing rain will continue into Wednesday morning across portions

There will also be the potential for flooding of creeks, streams,
