Hazardous Weather Outlook For CLARK County,MO

423 AM CST Sun Dec 17 2017


Patchy dense fog is possible early this morning mainly near 
the Highway 20 corridor. Any dense fog that develops could
deposit a thin layer of ice on roadways. Motorists in northeast 
Iowa and far northern Illinois should remain alert for reduced 
visibility and slick roads.

Areas of dense fog may occur across portions of the Outlook area 
tonight into early Monday morning. Also, some patchy freezing 
drizzle may form in areas where the surface temperature drops 
below freezing later tonight into early Monday morning. The 
latest indications suggest that areas generally along and
30 miles north of the Interstate 80 corridor may be more favored 
for this activity. If the freezing drizzle does manage to form 
late tonight, there may be some risk of it lingering into the 
Monday morning commute.


Accumulating snow is possible over parts of the region late 
Thursday night into Friday morning, mainly north of highway 30. 
However, it is too early to forecast the exact track of the low 
and potential snow amounts. Those with travel plans late in the 
week should keep up with the latest forecast.


Reports of any dense fog and slick road conditions early this
morning and Sunday night would be appreciated.
