WEATHER SYNOPSIS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
345 PM CST TUE MAR 3 2015

...HEAVY RAINFALL TONIGHT THROUGH EARLY WEDNESDAY MAY LEAD TO
FLOODING ISSUES...
...SIGNIFICANT EARLY MARCH WINTER STORM EXPECTED WEDNESDAY...

INGREDIENTS FOR A SIGNIFICANT WINTER STORM EVENT ARE COMING
TOGETHER ON WEDNESDAY TO PRODUCE A WINTRY MIX OF PRECIPITATION...ENDING
WITH MODERATE TO HEAVY SNOWFALL ACCUMULATION AND SHARPLY COLDER
TEMPERATURES OVER THE QUAD STATE REGION.

BEFORE THIS WINTRY WEATHER EVER ARRIVES...RESIDENTS ACROSS THE
REGION WILL BE DEALING LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN OVERNIGHT AND INTO
WEDNESDAY MORNING...ESPECIALLY OVER PARTS OF THE MISSOURI
BOOTHEEL AND WEST KENTUCKY.

IN FACT...A FLOOD WATCH HAS BEEN POSTED FOR MOST OF WEST
KENTUCKY...EXCEPT UNION AND HENDERSON COUNTIES...AND FOR NEW
MADRID AND MISSISSIPPI COUNTIES IN SOUTHEAST MISSOURI. THREE TO
THREE AND HALF INCHES OF PRECIPITATION WILL BE POSSIBLE IN THE
FLOOD WATCH AREA. FLOODING MAY BE POSSIBLE IN LOW LYING AREAS.

BY DAYBREAK ON WEDNESDAY MORNING...A COLD FRONT WILL HAVE MOVED
THROUGH THE QUAD STATE REGION. COLD AIR FILTERING IN BEHIND THIS
SHARP COLD FRONT WILL SHARPLY DROP TEMPERATURES AT THE SURFACE AND
ALOFT...CHANGING THE PRECIPITATION QUICKLY FROM RAIN TO FREEZING
RAIN...SLEET...THEN SNOW THROUGHOUT THE DAY ON WEDNESDAY. THIS
WINTRY MIX WILL PERSIST INTO WEDNESDAY NIGHT. THE COMBINATION OF
A THIN LAYER OF FREEZING RAIN...MORE SLEET...FOLLOWED BY
SIGNIFICANT SNOW WILL MAKE FOR TREACHEROUS DRIVING CONDITIONS.
TRAVEL IS NOT RECOMMENDED.

THE WINTRY WEATHER SHOULD MOVE OUT OF THE AREA QUICKLY BY THURSDAY
MORNING...BUT TEMPERATURES WILL STRUGGLE TO RISE INTO THE MIDDLE
20S THURSDAY...WITH RECORD LOWS IN THE SINGLE DIGITS THURSDAY NIGHT.

DRIER AND GRADUALLY WARMER WEATHER WILL THEN BE IN STORE FOR THE
WEEKEND.
