Winter Weather Advisory is up for the viewing area.  Ice Storm Warning is up for central Illinois.  A lobe of this greater ice accretion may reach spots in Newton, Jasper & northwest Benton counties.

So.............

This could be a really destructive ice storm for central Missouri to central Illinois with ice accumuluation of up to 1.50" possible.

Widespread freezing rain will overspread the area Friday morning, but change to rain by Friday afternoon.  It may begin as brief sleet.

0.10-0.25" ice accretion is likely.  Isolated amounts of up to 0.50" are possible in Newton, Jasper & northwestern Benton counties.

Given the icing & strong east to southeast winds, a few isolated power outages & a few downed tree limbs & snags are possible. 

Watch for icy roads, sidewalks & parking lots, especially those not treated &/or less traveled.

Period of sleet to snow is possible the northwest & northern area Friday night.

1" or less of accumulation is possible with potential of some slick areas on roads.

A few spotty to patchy light rain/snow/sleet showers are possible Saturday, but it should be a big deal.  No accumulation is expected.

However, snow is likely Saturday night to Sunday morning with minor accumulations that will lead to travel impacts.

Should melt quite a bit Sunday with highs 33-37 & then 37-45 Monday (but there will be a lot of cloudiness).

Rain is likely Wednesday, ending as some with highs 43-51 then falling to the 30s.

Winds may gust to 40 mph.

With lots of clouds, we should run 33-38 Wednesday after a few morning flurries or snow showers.

Thursday-Friday look dry with partly cloudy skies & highs in the 40s & lows in the 20s to 30s.

Rain is then likely Saturday, ending as some snow Sunday.  Highs in the 40s Saturday will drop to the 30s Sunday.
