Winter Weather Advisory issued for parts of Region 8

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - There's still a chance of a white Christmas across Region 8 as snow is predicted Christmas Eve and overnight into Christmas morning.

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory for south-central portions of Missouri including Howell and Oregon Counties for Friday afternoon and night.  The Region 8 Storm Team says rain or sleet may fall Friday afternoon, and then change to snow later in the day.  Little snow accumulation, if any is expected.  Most of the snow will fall from a line north of Interstate 40.

As the temperatures fall overnight into Christmas morning bridges and overpasses may become slick.  Use precaution when traveling.  The Region 8 Storm Team will have the latest information coming up on Region 8 News at 5 and 6.
