Forecasts Show Potentially Dangerous Ice Storm Hitting the Area

Another round of freezing rain and sleet will develop across Central Illinois on Sunday and will continue through Sunday night.

In Missouri, forecasters were calling for up to three-quarters of an inch of freezing rain over the weekend, potentially more in the southwestern part of the state. "If you do have to head out, be ready for the slippery conditions on the road, slippery sidewalks and plan on taking it easy on the roadways because travel will likely not be pleasant Monday morning". "More than 3,700 employees and 1,700 trucks will be available statewide to battle the winter storm this weekend, applying salt where needed".

"Safety is our priority every day of the year, but it takes on added significance when severe weather strikes", Pate said in a release. "It is vital for residents to stay away from downed power lines because these lines may still be energized".

Some of the big cities most likely to be hit by the ice include Topeka, Oklahoma City, Kansas City, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Columbus, Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C., AccuWeather said. In anticipation of the storm, Gov. Mary Fallin has issues a state of emergency for all 77 counties in the state.

This ice storm will not be your ordinary, "Hey, look at those pretty, ice-covered trees" event.

Travel may become hazardous from Sunday morning through Monday, despite that it is a holiday weekend. Crews are also preparing equipment for possible debris removal. The NWS needs real-time reports of hail size, wind damage, flash flooding, heavy rain, tornadoes and waterspouts to effectively warn the public of inclement weather.

Another office of the National Weather Service in Kansas City tweeted information aimed at those who believe that their vehicles can drive safely on ice (spoiler alert: they can't).

Freezing rain occurs when a layer of warm air comes between two layers of cold air, like an unwelcome third wheel on a date. Cloudy, with a low around 26. The chance of precipitation is 30% for the day of service.
