The small numbers are the amounts of freezing rain in inches and tenths. St. Louis is right on the 1″ line and Indianapolis is predicted to have nearly 1.1 inches. Combined with wind, this would lead to multi-day power outages.
The National Weather Service advisories and warnings are unchanged from the last update. A lot has changed on the radar in two hours. Here is the 8pm radar from AccuWeather:
Thunderstorms have developed from Abilene, TX into southwest Oklahoma. These will spread north northeast during the night and change to into snow-producers after midnight.
The snow has increased in the Texas Panhandle. Snow is just developing in southern Kansas (it is snowing in Wichita) and northwest Oklahoma.
The bottom line: The forecasts you read below are still valid.
