Widespread moderate to heavy precipitation will impact the region
tonight, as the powerful weather system continues to approach from
the southwest. Precipitation will range from rain and
thunderstorms over Oklahoma, the southeast quarter of Kansas and
much of Missouri, to freezing rain, sleet and snow over the rest
of Kansas, Iowa and Nebraska. Additional ice and snow
accumulations are likely. Forecast low temperatures range from 20s
