    LIFR and IFR conditions are expected to continue through the
    morning across the area as the cold front stays stretched across
    MO. The front is also providing on and off precipitation with
    freezing rain being observed west of a line from Linn County, KS
    to Putnam County, MO and rain east of the line. More widespread
    freezing rain is expected later this morning into the early
    afternoon, for western MO and eastern KS. The precipitation will
    then start to move east with the front, exiting the STJ area
    around 18Z, the KC metro around 21Z, IRK around 00Z, and central
    MO closer to 03Z. As the precipitation moves east, the freezing
    rain will move east with it. Around STJ should see up to 0.25 of
    an inch, with the KC metro and surrounding areas are expected to
    see the most ice (up to 0.30 of an inch) and up to 0.02 possible
    around IRK and central MO. The lower ceilings and visibility will
    exit the area with the precipitation and front, leaving everyone
    VFR by 06Z.
