Special Statement

Statement as of 9:49 AM CST on January 31, 2015

Expires 1:00 PM EST on January 31, 2015


... Brief period of light freezing rain possible this morning...

Rain advancing north into the area from northern Missouri may cool
temperatures enough to produce a couple of hours of very light
freezing rain this morning. This may cause a light glazing on area
roads... especially south of Highway 34 before noon today. As
temperatures warm into the early afternoon the precipitation will
change to light rain. A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect for
the area tonight through Sunday.

Motorists are urged to drive carefully this morning if icy
conditions are encountered.
