The National Weather Service in Springfield is forecasting a winter storm to cover our area beginning as early as Friday, January 13th, and continuing through Saturday, January 14th. The storm is predicted to bring ice throughout the time period. The worst case weather models indicate that we could have ice accumulation throughout the day on Friday, which can result in power outages.
