THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF THE MISSOURI
OZARKS AND EXTREME SOUTHEAST KANSAS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

WEATHER HAZARDS EXPECTED...

  LIMITED LIGHTNING RISK.
  ELEVATED ICE ACCUMULATION RISK.

DISCUSSION...

  PATCHY FREEZING DRIZZLE WILL BE POSSIBLE THIS MORNING ALONG
  THE HIGHWAY 54 CORRIDOR IN CENTRAL MISSOURI. ANY ICE
  ACCUMULATION WOULD BE VERY MINOR AND SPOTTY.

  AN ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM WILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS SOUTH
  CENTRAL MISSOURI...MAINLY THIS MORNING. THE MAIN POTENTIAL
  HAZARD WOULD BE ISOLATED CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING STRIKES.

  FREEZING RAIN AND POSSIBLY SOME SLEET WILL THEN DEVELOP
  ACROSS SOUTHERN MISSOURI LATE TONIGHT. ICE ACCUMULATIONS OF
  A THIN GLAZE UP TO A TENTH OF AN INCH ARE EXPECTED BY
  SUNRISE...ESPECIALLY ALONG AND SOUTH OF A JOPLIN TO
  SPRINGFIELD TO SALEM LINE.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.

  FREEZING RAIN AND POSSIBLY SOME SLEET WILL SPREAD NORTH
  ACROSS THE MISSOURI OZARKS ON FRIDAY. PERIODS OF FREEZING
  RAIN AND RAIN WILL THEN PERSIST INTO THIS WEEKEND. THE
  FREEZING RAIN WILL SLOWLY CHANGE TO RAIN FROM SOUTH TO
  NORTH ACROSS THE REGION FROM SATURDAY INTO EARLY SUNDAY.
  HOWEVER...THE EXACT TIMING OF THE CHANGEOVER AT PARTICULAR
  LOCATIONS ACROSS THE OUTLOOK AREA REMAINS IN QUESTION.

  STORM TOTAL ICE AMOUNTS ARE EXPECTED TO BE HIGHEST ALONG
  AND NORTH OF A PITTSBURG KANSAS TO STOCKTON TO ROLLA
  MISSOURI LINE. ICE AMOUNTS OVER THIS REGION ARE EXPECTED
  TO RANGE FROM A HALF TO THREE QUARTERS OF AN INCH.

  TO THE HIGHWAY 60 CORRIDOR. AREAS OF FAR SOUTHERN
  MISSOURI CAN EXPECT A THIN GLAZE UP TO TWO TENTHS OF
  AN INCH OF ICE ACCUMULATION.

  IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT EXPECTED ICE ACCUMULATIONS MAY
  STILL CHANGE AS WEATHER MODELS GET A BETTER HANDLE ON
  PRECIPITATION TYPES AND AMOUNTS FOR LATER THIS WEEKEND.

  FROM LATE THIS WEEKEND INTO MONDAY...THERE IS ALSO A
  SLIGHT CHANCE FOR A FEW THUNDERSTORMS.
