Potential for significant winter precipitation exists this
Some wintry precipitation is expected this weekend. The heaviest
precipitation potential is Saturday night. Depending on the exact
track of the storm system, significant impacts are possible in
southwest Kentucky and southeast Missouri. At this time, mostly
sleet and snow are forecast, but some light icing is possible.
The precipitation will be slow to get started very late Friday
night and Saturday. Many areas will remain dry until Saturday
night, especially those areas north of a Cape Girardeau to Paducah
to Hopkinsville Kentucky line.
Steadier and more widespread precipitation is forecast Saturday
night. There will be a sharp northern edge to the precipitation
shield, and the Interstate 64 corridor in southern Illinois and
southwest Indiana could stay dry. Further south, significant snow
and sleet accumulations are possible across southwest Kentucky
and southeast Missouri.
The precipitation will diminish on Sunday, when some additional
light accumulations are possible. Temperatures will creep slightly
above freezing on Sunday.
