WEATHER ALERT – Snow Likely 

WESTERN Ky. (02/13/2015) – The National Weather Service has issued the following alert for the region…

A storm system is still forecast to move across the area Sunday night. It will likely bring accumulating snow to most of the area.

Snow should develop Sunday afternoon and spread East and Southeast across portions of Southeast Missouri, Southern Illinois and Western Kentucky through sunset. Snow will expand across the area Sunday night. Moderate accumulations of snow cannot be ruled out, especially south of a line from Carbondale Illinois to Calhoun Kentucky. Lighter accumulations are expected north of this line up to the interstate 64 Corridor. The snow should taper off quickly Monday morning across Western Kentucky.

The combination of an expected dry snow and cold conditions at onset means accumulations should begin immediately. Most of the snow is expected Sunday night with temperatures falling back into the teens. As a result, snow may accumulate efficiently on roads, despite treatment, given the rather cold conditions.

This system is still evolving. The forecast track and amount of precipitation expected has been changing as it develops. Adjustments to both are still expected. Accumulation is highly expected.
