Winter Storm Watch

Statement as of 4:13 AM CST on March 03, 2015

Expires 7:00 AM EST on March 05, 2015


... Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from Wednesday morning
through late Wednesday night...

A Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from Wednesday morning
through late Wednesday night.

* Timing: rain should begin changing over to freezing rain...
sleet and snow from northwest to southeast late Tuesday night
and Wednesday morning. The changeover to sleet and snow may not
occur until Wednesday afternoon over the southern pennyrile
region of western Kentucky. The snow will then taper off from
northwest to southeast Wednesday night.

* Main impact: by early Thursday morning... snowfall totals are
expected to range from 2 to 5 inches along the northern
periphery of southern Illinois up to 6 to 8 inches southeast of
a line from Petersburg Indiana to Carbondale Illinois to Poplar
Bluff Missouri. Locally higher amounts are likely where snow
banding occurs. As much as one inch of sleet may fall prior to
the snow... particularly across western Kentucky and far
southeast Missouri.

* Other impacts: this much snow and sleet will cause significant
travel issues across the region. Isolated power outages will
also be possible. Make preparations now for this upcoming winter
storm. Stay tuned for updates and the probable upgrade to a
Winter Storm Warning later today.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant
snow... sleet... or ice accumulations that would greatly impact
travel. Stay tuned for later statements. This watch will be
upgraded to a warning if winter storm conditions become more
certain.




Special Statement

Statement as of 2:16 PM CST on March 03, 2015

Expires 8:00 PM EST on March 03, 2015


... Locally dense fog will continue through sunset...

Those of you traveling through the quad state region will continue
to experience rapid changes in visibility due to fog for the rest
of this afternoon.

Warm and breezy southerly winds are bringing above normal
temperatures to the region this afternoon. This warm air is moving
over cold air just above the ground. This is causing the air near
the surface to become quite saturated... leading to the development
of fog.

This fog will be locally dense at times and may vary rapidly from
one location to another.

Be prepared for rapid changes in visibility while you are driving
on roadways. Make sure that you keep your headlights on... signal
your intentions well ahead of time... and leave enough room between
yourself and other drivers on the Road.

This area of fog will gradually move northward during the
afternoon... spreading from a Bloomfield Missouri... Paducah and
Henderson Kentucky line as of 2 PM CST... northward near a
Perryville Missouri... Harrisburg Illinois Evansville Indiana line
before dusk.

As rain continues to overspread the region... visibilities due to
the fog will improve. Drivers will then need to be watchful for
ponding of water on roadways and low lying areas.

Should the fog become more widespread and dense through the
afternoon and evening... a dense fog advisory may be required.
