Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 3 pm Wednesday afternoon to 3 pm Thursday for the following counties in Missouri:
Benton-Morgan-Miller-Maries-Vernon-St. Clair-Hickory-Camden-Pulaski-Phelps-Barton-Cedar-Polk-Dallas-Laclede-Texas-Dent-Jasper-Dade-Greene-Webster-Wright-Newton-Lawrence-Christian-Douglas-Howell-Shannon-McDonald-Barry-Stone-Taney-Ozark-and Oregon.


Moisture will continue to spread northward today with upper level energy moving in from the west and interacting with the increasing moisture. Light precipitation is expected to begin this afternoon and may begin as a mix of light rain...Light snow and sleet. As the temperatures cool by late afternoon, the transition to all light snow will begin. Drier air will begin to work into the area aloft which should change precipitation over to freezing drizzle during the evening and overnight hours. The freezing drizzle will continue into Thursday morning.

Overall, wintry precipitation totals will be light with less than two inches of snow expected and less than a tenth of an inch of ice. There may be enough glazing of ice to produce some travel problems from late Wednesday evening through Thursday morning.


Another Winter Weather Advisory is also issued from 6 pm Wednesday evening to noon Thursday. for the following counties  in Arkansas:  Washington...Madison...Crawford...Benton...Sebastian...Carroll... Baxter...Boone...Fulton...Izard...Marion...Newton...Searcy...Sharp...Stone and Franklin.

Light rain and drizzle will begin to overspread the region during the day today. A few locations could experience a little ice accumulation on elevated surfaces during the day as temperatures hover near or just above freezing. Temperatures will fall below freezing areawide early this evening which will create the greatest chance for icing on roadways. The greatest
accumulation is expected to occur from southeast oklahoma into northwest Arkansas and is expected to remain less than a tenth of an inch. Lighter amounts will affect the remainder of the region. Any amount of ice on roadways could cause dangerous travel conditions.

Less than a tenth of an inch of ice accumulation is expected from 6 pm Wednesday evening to noon Thursday.
