Light Accumulations of Freezing Rain Possible Wednesday Night into Thursday Morning

We have a potential for light accumulations of freezing rain in the Ozarks beginning Wednesday evening.

The National Weather Service says any accumulation will mainly be on elevated surfaces, such as bridges and overpasses.

Forecasters say ground temperatures should be warm enough to prevent widespread travel issues.

Exact amounts and placement are somewhat uncertain.

Then, additional freezing rain is possible across west central and central Missouri and portions of southeast Kansas Thursday night into Friday morning.

Widespread rainfall is also expected between Tuesday night and Friday, with the first round coming Tuesday night into Wednesday night, and the second round Thursday into Friday morning.

Total amounts of two to three inches are possible, with locally up to four inches southeast of Interstate 44.

Minor flooding of some rivers and streams is possible, as well as flooding of low water crossings.

The weather service advises to plan alternate routes to avoid low water crossings.
