The first significant winter storm of the season occurred during the day Saturday, December 1.  A layer of sub-freezing air was in place across much of northern Missouri at the start of the event.  As strong warm air overspread the cold air at the surface, freezing rain developed and moved northward across the region.  Warm air at the surface moved northward across the entire area as well, increasing temperatures to above freezing and improving weather conditions by mid afternoon.  Total ice accumulations of .25 inch or greater occurred north of a line from Mound City, Mo to Chillicothe to Macon, with just a thin glaze south of that line to the Kansas City suburbs, Carrollton and Boonville.
