NO HAZARDOUS WEATHER IS EXPECTED AT THIS TIME.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY

VERY HIGH GRASSLAND FIRE DANGER IS FORECAST ON WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON

A WINTRY MIX OF FREEZING RAIN...SLEET AND SNOW IS FORECAST TO
IMPACT THE AREA STARTING FRIDAY MORNING AND PERSIST INTO MONDAY.
ACCUMULATIONS OF ICE AND/OR SNOW ARE PROBABLE, WHICH WILL LIKELY
IMPACT TRAVEL AT TIMES.

THERE REMAINS CONSIDERABLE UNCERTAINTY AS TO WHERE AND WHEN THE
VARIOUS PRECIPITATION TYPES WILL OCCUR...RESULTING IN LOWER
CONFIDENCE IN THE MAGNITUDE AND NATURE OF THE THREAT AT ANY GIVEN
LOCATION. FOR AREAS EAST OF I-35 THE PRIMARY UNCERTAINTY IS THE
POSSIBILITY THAT TEMPERATURES COULD WARM ABOVE FREEZING AT
TIMES...ESPECIALLY OVER THE WEEKEND. THIS WOULD OBVIOUSLY LIMIT
STORM TOTAL SNOW AND ICE ACCUMULATION. FOR AREAS WEST OF I-35,
TEMPERATURES WILL LIKELY REMAIN BELOW FREEZING THROUGH AT LEAST
SATURDAY...BUT AMOUNTS ARE MUCH LESS CERTAIN.
