11:10pm Freezing Rain Update

Ice Storm Warning Extended into the Missouri Ozarks

National Weather Service warnings as of 10:53pm. 
Color codes:
  • Deep purple = ice storm warning.
  • Pink = winter storm warning for ice (lesser threat than the deep purple).
  • Purple = winter weather advisory for freezing rain or freezing drizzle (lesser condition).
  • Green = freezing fog (slippery roads may develop).
  • Gray = fog advisory
  • Ignore the pale tan.
An ice storm warning not only means that roads will be nearly impassible but that there is a chance of power outages.

The darker colors indicate heavier amounts of freezing rain.
