Winter Weather Advisory

Statement as of 2:43 PM CST on February 13, 2016

Expires 4:00 AM EST on February 15, 2016


... Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 3 am Sunday to 3 am CST
Monday...

The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a Winter
Weather Advisory... which is in effect from 3 am Sunday to 3 am
CST Monday.

* Timing: after midnight tonight areas of light snow will begin
moving southeast across the region. Toward sunrise a mixture of
freezing rain and sleet is possible mainly over the western
portions of southeast Missouri. Snowfall is expected to increase
through the morning hours over the northeast two thirds of the
quad state while the mixture of freezing rain and sleet will
migrate farther east into far western Kentucky. Snowfall will
begin to slowly taper off from west to east in the afternoon but
the freezing rain/sleet mixture will push farther east. Sunday
night a rain/freezing rain mixture over the entire area should
transition to all rain except over portions of southwest
Indiana.

* Main impact: snowfall totals should top out in the 2 to 3 inch
range over southeast Illinois and southwest Indiana... then
taper off to a half inch or less over far southeast Missouri.
Ice accumulations should be light and generally limited to the
southwest half of the quad state region. After another cold
night tonight... all precipitation should immediately begin to
stick... especially on elevated surfaces such as bridges and
overpasses. This will likely make travel on Sunday hazardous.

* Other impacts: this will likely make travel on Sunday
hazardous... therefore motorists should slow down and allow
extra time to reach your destination. Put extra driving space
between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead of you.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow... sleet... or
freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for
slippery roads and limited visibilities... and use caution while
driving.

Special Statement

Statement as of 4:34 AM CST on February 13, 2016

Expires 5:00 PM EST on February 13, 2016


... Accumulating snow and ice possible Sunday and Sunday night...

A storm system will move eastward across the upper Midwest
Sunday... and into the Great Lakes region Sunday night. This will
draw plenty of low-level moisture and warmer air over our region.
With Arctic air initially in place at the surface... the result
will be some combination of snow... freezing rain... and rain
beginning early Sunday. The entire area will eventually
transition to all rain by Monday morning at the latest.

West Kentucky will see the most precipitation... while southwest
Illinois may not see much precipitation at all. Temperatures will
climb above freezing from southeast to northwest Sunday night
into Monday morning... so much of the precipitation over west
Kentucky may fall as rain.

The current forecast emphasizes snowfall for much of the
event... with a couple of inches possible across the region.
However... the potential exists for the transition to freezing rain
and rain to occur more quickly... which would limit the impact of
this storm system. Hopefully the details of the forecast will come
into better focus this afternoon.
