Kansas to the upper 30s over south central Missouri. Temperatures
will not change much this morning and throughout the day today.

We will stay above freezing so we will only have to deal with more

southeast Kansas around Bourbon and Crawford Counties where
temperatures are close to 32. There will still be a low potential
of some light freezing rain but no impacts are expected this

will impact the area this morning through the afternoon. Areas
north of I-44 could see additional few tenths...areas across far
