...WINTER WEATHER EXPECTED ACROSS THE REGION THIS WEEKEND...

A STORM SYSTEM WILL BRING ACCUMULATING SNOW TO MOST OF OUR REGION
SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY.  RAIN IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP ON
SATURDAY...AND THEN BECOME MIXED WITH AND CHANGE TO SNOW ALONG
AND NORTH OF INTERSTATE 70 ON SATURDAY NIGHT. BY SUNDAY...SNOW IS
EXPECTED ALONG AND NORTH OF THE INTERSTATE 70 CORRIDOR...WITH THE
RAIN GRADUALLY BECOMING MIXED WITH AND CHANGING OVER TO SNOW OVER
SOUTHEAST MISSOURI.

ALTHOUGH IT IS TOO EARLY TO PIN DOWN EXACT SNOW TOTALS...IT
APPEARS THAT 4 TO 6 INCHES OF SNOW WILL BE POSSIBLE OVER NORTHEAST
MISSOURI AND WEST CENTRAL ILLINOIS. THE SNOWFALL WILL DECREASE AS
YOU HEAD SOUTH...WITH 1-3 INCHES ALONG THE INTERSTATE 70 CORRIDOR...AND
ACCUMULATIONS OF UNDER AN INCH OVER SOUTHEAST MISSOURI.

SPECIFIC SNOWFALL AMOUNTS WILL BE EXTREMELY DEPENDENT UPON THE
TEMPERATURE PROFILE IN THE LOW LEVELS OF THE ATMOSPHERE...AND A
SLIGHT WARMING OR COOLING OF THE AIRMASS COULD MAKE A LARGE
DIFFERENCE IN THE SNOWFALL THAT AN AREA RECEIVES. SNOWFALL
FORECASTS MAY BE ADJUSTED LATER TODAY AND TONIGHT AS THE
TEMPERATURE PROFILE OF THE ATMOSPHERE BECOMES A BIT MORE CLEAR.

THOSE PLANNING TRAVEL ACROSS THE REGION SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY
MAY ENCOUNTER HAZARDOUS DRIVING CONDTIIONS...SO PLAN YOUR TRIP
ACCORDINGLY. PLEASE BE CERTAIN TO MONITOR THE LATEST FORECAST
INFORMATION FOR POSSIBLE WATCHES...WARNINGS OR ADVISORIES.
