    Default WOF Report maybe delayed due to loss of power

    Hi All -

    St. Louis, where the World Of Fire Report is put togther and posted, is possibly in for some nasty weather... Assuming the power never goes out here - World Of Fire Report: 01-24-04 & 01-25-04 will be posted on Sunday. Otherwise, I've got blankets, flashlight, batteries & candles. I'll be home all day on Sunday either getting caught up on the World Of Fire Report or sitting in the dark trying to keep warm.

    Should be a lot of fun,

    -Paul

    A DANGEROUS STORM WILL BE IMPACTING THE REGION TONIGHT AND SUNDAY


    .LOW PRESSURE OVER THE OKLAHOMA PANHANDLE WILL CONTINUE TO STRENGTHEN
    AS IT MOVES EASTWARD THROUGH ARKANSAS TONIGHT AND INTO WESTERN
    KENTUCKY LATE ON SUNDAY. THIS STORM SYSTEM WILL HAVE ACCESS TO GULF
    OF MEXICO MOISTURE...AND AS THIS INTERSECTS WITH THE COLD AIR THAT IS
    ALREADY IN PLACE ACROSS MUCH OF MISSOURI AND ILLINOIS...WILL PRODUCE
    A VARIETY OF WEATHER CONDITIONS TONIGHT AND SUNDAY.

    FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET WILL BE THE DOMINANT WEATHER TYPES FOR MOST
    AREAS TONIGHT AND SUNDAY...EXCEPT IN NORTHEAST MISSOURI AND WEST
    CENTRAL ILLINOIS WHERE A SNOW AND SLEET MIXTURE WILL BE FOUND.

    THESE WEATHER CONDITIONS WILL RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT ICE AND SLEET
    ACCUMULATION...WITH MINOR ADDITIONAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS IN NORTHEAST
    MISSOURI AND WEST CENTRAL ILLINOIS...AND WILL RESULT IN DANGEROUS
    ROAD CONDITIONS AS WELL AS FOR PEDESTRIANS...ESPECIALLY ON UNTREATED
    SURFACES. THE MOST EFFICIENT ICE ACCUMULATION IS EXPECTED ACROSS THE
    INTERSTATE 70 CORRIDOR WHERE TEMPERATURES IN THE 20S WILL ALLOW THE
    FREEZING RAIN TO ADHERE TO SURFACES MORE EASILY THAN IN SOUTHEAST
    MISSOURI AND SOUTHERN ILLINOIS WHERE TEMPERATURES WILL BE CLOSER TO
    THE FREEZING MARK.

    STAY TUNED TO NOAA WEATHER RADIO FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION CONCERNING THIS DANGEROUS WINTER STORM.
