Fog and freezing fog is possible tonight, which could support
patchy slick spots on roadways across portions of east-central
Kansas.

This hazardous weather outlook is for east central...north
central and northeast Kansas.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and tonight.

The potential for fog will increase tonight and continue into
Wednesday morning. The most widespread dense fog is forecast to
occur south of a Council Grove to Ottawa line, where a Dense Fog
Advisory is in effect beginning at midnight tonight. With
temperatures falling below 32 degrees, minor ice accumulations
could occur where the fog is most dense and persistent.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.

The potential for fog, including freezing fog, will persist into
Wednesday morning, and the Dense Fog Advisory continues through 9
AM.

Light freezing rain and light snow will be possible Wednesday
afternoon into Wednesday night. Light ice accumulations could
result in hazardous travel for Wednesday night, especially north
of a Council Grove to Ottawa line.

Accumulating snow and strong winds could affect the region from
Friday into Saturday, as a storm system moves across the region.
There remains uncertainty regarding the details of this system,
including exact snowfall amounts and the strength of winds. In the
wake of the snow potential, there is increasing confidence that a
bitterly cold air mass could spread across the region from late
Saturday through the remainder of the weekend. Dangerously cold
wind chills of 15 to 25 degrees below zero could occur Saturday
night.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.
