Issued: 2:33 AM CST Jan. 17, 2020 – National Weather Service

... Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 6 am CST
Saturday...

* what... a wintry mix of precipitation is expected, including
snow, sleet and freezing drizzle. Total snow and sleet
accumulation generally ranging from one-half inch to 4 inches.
Ice accumulation ranging from a light glaze up to one-tenth of
an inch. Areas of blowing snow with southeast wind gusts of
20-30 mph today and even stronger northwest wind gusts of 45 to
55 mph tonight.

* When... until 6 am CST Saturday.

* Impacts... plan on slippery Road conditions. Areas of blowing
snow could significantly reduce visibility. The hazardous
conditions could impact the morning or evening commute.

* Additional details... because precipitation types will vary, not
all of the advisory area will see the same impacts. Generally
though, most of the snow and sleet will fall before noon today,
with the greatest potential for ice accumulation during the
afternoon. Temperatures could rise slightly above freezing this
afternoon, perhaps improving slick conditions at least briefly.
Even if this occurs, temperatures will drop below freezing again
tonight, causing a re-freeze of wet surfaces.

Slow down and use caution while traveling.
