Tracking impactful light freezing rain into Monday morning

TONIGHT: An ABC 17 Stormtrack Weather Alert Day is in effect as I'm tracking light freezing rain moving over mid-MO after midnight. Temperatures at the surface will be in the mid 20s with temperatures in the upper atmosphere just above freezing. This is why we will observe rain freezing as it hits the ground.

TOMORROW: It's an ABC 17 Stormtrack Weather Alert Day because of this system bringing light freezing rain throughout the morning. I'm tracking this freezing rain starting right after midnight and continuing throughout much of Monday morning before transitioning into a cold rain in the afternoon hours. Traces to 1/10 of an inch of accumulation is expected for central and northern Missouri, with locally higher amounts to the south of I-70. This is enough to cause slick roadways, sidewalks, and cause accumulation on cars that are parked outside. Travel impacts are expected to be the worst tomorrow morning, but still could not be ideal in the afternoon hours. Moderate cold rain is expected to become widespread in the afternoon and evening hours.

EXTENDED: I'm tracking rain exiting throughout the early morning hours Tuesday. This sets up for a relatively dry and warmer than average day as temperatures reach into the low 40s. High temperatures in the low to mid 40s stay consistent throughout the entire week, but rain returns as well. The highest chance (50%) for widespread rain comes Wednesday with lower chances (10-20%) for more rainfall lasting into the weekend.
