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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

WEATHER HAZARDS EXPECTED...

  SIGNIFICANT ICE ACCUMULATION RISK.

DISCUSSION...

  FREEZING RAIN SHOWERS WILL CONTINUE TO DEVELOP TODAY
  ACROSS MUCH OF THE REGION...WITH A GRADUAL NORTHWARD
  PROGRESSION TO THE AREA OF HEAVIEST PRECIPITATION. ALONG WITH
  THE FREEZING RAIN...PERIODS OF FREEZING DRIZZLE CAN ALSO BE
  EXPECTED WHERE TEMPERATURES ARE BELOW FREEZING.

  CURRENT EXPECTATIONS ARE FOR THE FREEZING LINE TO VERY SLOWLY
  LIFT NORTH THIS MORNING...REACHING THE HIGHWAY 60 CORRIDOR BY
  AFTERNOON. IT IS THEN EXPECTED TO SLOW AND MAKE VERY LIMITED
  PROGRESS TO THE NORTH TONIGHT.

  CONFIDENCE IN THE EXACT TIMING AND PROGRESSION OF THE FREEZING
  LINE REMAINS LOW...AND WILL NEED TO BE MONITORED CLOSELY
  THROUGHOUT THE DAY TODAY. EVEN A VERY SMALL CHANGE OF LESS THAN
  ONE DEGREE COULD HAVE SIGNIFICANT IMPACTS ON FINAL ICE TOTALS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.

  THE FREEZING RAIN WILL SLOWLY CHANGE TO RAIN FROM SOUTH TO
  NORTH ACROSS THE REGION FROM SATURDAY INTO EARLY SUNDAY.

  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.
  LOCALIZED AMOUNTS AROUND AN INCH ARE POSSIBLE...
  ESPECIALLY IF THE FREEZING RAIN THREAT PERSIST LONGER
  INTO SUNDAY. SOUTH OF THIS AREA...ICE ACCUMULATION
  AMOUNTS FROM A QUARTER TO A HALF INCH ARE EXPECTED DOWN
  TO THE HIGHWAY 60 CORRIDOR. AREAS OF FAR SOUTHERN
  MISSOURI CAN EXPECT UP TO A QUARTER INCH OF ICE.

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