  HEAVIEST AMOUNTS ALONG AND NORTH OF THE INTERSTATE 44 CORRIDOR.
  LOCAL AMOUNTS AROUND 4 INCHES WILL BE POSSIBLE IN SOME AREAS BY

  A SECOND BAND OF HEAVIER SNOW WILL THEN DEVELOP AROUND OR JUST
  BEFORE SUNSET AND THEN SPREAD NORTHEAST ALONG THE INTERSTATE 44
  CORRIDOR INTO THIS EVENING. LIGHT SNOW WILL PERSIST THIS
  EVENING OUTSIDE OF THIS HEAVIER BAND ACROSS THE REMAINDER OF
  THE MISSOURI OZARKS AND EXTREME SOUTHEASTERN KANSAS.

  MAINLY LIGHT SNOW AND FLURRIES ARE THEN EXPECTED OVERNIGHT AND
  SUNDAY MORNING ACROSS ALL OF THE MISSOURI OZARKS AND EXTREME
  SOUTHEASTERN KANSAS. A PERIOD OF LIGHT FREEZING RAIN WILL ALSO
  BE POSSIBLE ACROSS MAINLY SOUTHERN MISSOURI LATE TONIGHT AND
  SUNDAY MORNING. MOST OF THE PRECIPITATION WILL THEN CHANGE TO
  RAIN BY SUNDAY AFTERNOON ACROSS SOUTHERN MISSOURI BUT A LIGHT
  WINTRY MIX WILL BE POSSIBLE NORTH OF INTERSTATE 44.

* TIMING AND AREAS AFFECTED...THE WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IS IN
  EFFECT FOR EXTREME SOUTHEASTERN KANSAS AND THE MISSOURI OZARKS
  THROUGH SUNDAY MORNING.

  SLIDE OFFS AND ACCIDENTS.
