is in effect from 10 PM this evening to 4 am CDT Wednesday.
* This advisory is for areas along and north of a Chillicothe to
Macon line... including adjacent southern Iowa.
* Rain is expected to overspread the area this evening... changing
over to snow between 9 and 11 PM. Precipitation will quickly end
across the area after 1 am.
* Snow... possibly heavy... is expected to fall over a several hour
window later this evening. Snowfall rates could approach two inches
per hour... with a few thunderstorms also possible. Amounts will
greatly depend on snowfall intensity over this short duration... as
well as temperatures. The potential exists for 2 to 4 inches across
the advisory area... with lesser amounts further south and west.
* Impacts... this snow will be accompanied by very strong northeast
winds of 30 gusting to 45 mph... leading to severely reduced
visibilities and possibly white out conditions. Despite the warm
temperatures over the past two days... rapid accumulations could
lead to slushy accumulations on roadways as well.
A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow will cause
travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited
visibilities... and use caution while driving.
