South Central Kansas and Southeast Kansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Patchy fog will impact portions of south-central, east-central and
southeast Kansas through mid-morning, mainly along and east of the
Kansas Turnpike. Patchy visibilities less than one-half mile are
likely. Additionally, watch for patchy slick spots on mainly bridges
and overpasses along and near the Turnpike corridor, due to
temperatures near freezing.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Marginally very high grassland fire danger is possible Thursday
across eastern Kansas, due to mild temperatures and strong south
winds.

Much colder air will arrive across Mid-America Thursday night,
likely persisting through month`s end. The much colder air in
concert with breezy north winds will support wind chill readings
near to below zero at times, especially during overnight and morning
hours. Additionally, light snow is possible Saturday night and
Christmas Eve. Uncertainty remains too high to discuss specifics at
this time, so please stay tuned if traveling over the weekend.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
