I wish I could tell you this was some sort of April Fool's Day prank.  However, it's not.  The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for the tristate and we could see significant snowfall Friday night into Saturday morning.

Here are the Winter Storm Watch details from the National Weather Service:

National Weather Service

A storm system will approach the mid Mississippi and Ohio Valley regions late Friday. Rain is expected to change over to wet snow Friday evening and become heavy at times overnight. Several inches of accumulation are possible generally north of a Perryville Missouri, to Calhoun Kentucky line. This includes the cities of Carbondale, West Frankfort, Harrisburg, Mount Carmel, Evansville, Henderson and Owensboro.

According to Eyewitness News meteorologist, the forecast models are all over the place.  While some are calling for up to ten inches of snow, AccuWeather is currently predicting a more moderate snowfall between two to four inches . . .


The Weather Channel is keeping its snowfall predictions relatively reasonable as well (thank goodness) . . .
