I don’t think it will be an ice storm but the timing could be everything on some freezing rain .
The precipitation is expected in the pre-dawn hours on Friday. With relation to rush hour, this could be problematic.
Ground temperatures are not too bad and the air temperatures will only be slightly below freezing on Friday morning.
Still, without sunlight or the benefit of traffic, roads could be slick in Springfield and much of southwest Missouri starting around 3 am and lasting well into the daylight hours.
