According to ISU rule 579, the 55 skaters will be split into two sessions, the top 28 ladies in the ISU World Standings "skating later", and then the lower 27 ladies "skating earlier", as they call it. Rule 548 determines that the warm-up groups will be 5/5/5/6/6 skaters in the earlier session, and 5/5/6/6/6 skaters in the later session. The final two groups (12 skaters) will consist of the 12 highest-ranked ladies in the ISU World Standings. The other 16 ladies in the later session will be those skaters ranked 13th through 28th highest in the ISU World Standings. All other ladies will draw for skate order in the earlier session, and those with no ISU World Standing will be drawn for the first spots of the skating order.


So, if you followed through all of that, you get the following:

The first two warm-up groups plus the first skater of warm-up group three will be composed of those ladies that have no world ranking:

Unranked Georgia Glastris GRE
Unranked Yoniko Eva Washington IND
Unranked Clara Peters IRL
Unranked Zanna Pugaca LAT
Unranked Beatrice Rozinskaite LTU
Unranked Fleur Maxwell LUX
Unranked Sonja Mugosa MNE
Unranked Sabina Paquier ROM
Unranked Marina Seeh SRB
Unranked Abigail Pietersen RSA
Unranked Bettina Heim SUI

The final five skaters in group three as well as all skaters in groups four and five will fill out the rest of the ladies skating in the earlier session:
