Finally- after all the 'anticipation-'  Round 1 of possibly 3 begins...

Rain- freezing on contact- is now falling in southwest Johnson county along I-35 south of Olathe- according to KC SCOUT traffic cameras showing wet roadway.

At 8:51 pm- a Kansas Highway Patrol unit reports "freezing rain in Olathe.".

The shown band of light to moderate rain will move from Miami county into Johnson county KS- Cass and Jackson counties in Missouri by 10 pm..
