WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
445 AM CST SUN Nov 16 2014

Yesterday afternoon, clouds rapidly increased from west to east
across the Quad State region. Highs were in the upper 30s to lower
40s yesterday, and winds were generally light out of the east. By
mid afternoon, there were some areas of light rain and light sleet
in parts of southeastern Missouri and southern Illinois, but most of
it did not reach the ground. However, just after sunset, as those
areas of precipitation moved eastward, a new band of precipitation
moved in from central Missouri and intensified. There were reports
of rain, sleet, and even snow associated with this band in the
evening as it continued to move eastward, affecting locations
generally south of Interstate 64. The ground was warm enough to melt
the sleet and snow quickly. All precipitation was out of the region
by 400 am. Temperatures slowly fell through the 30s overnight, and
should bottom out this morning near or just below freezing.

A wintry precipitation event will begin today for most of the Quad
State region, except for the southernmost part of the Purchase and
Pennyrile areas of western Kentucky, where rain is expected through
the evening hours. Snow will be the dominant precipitation type
across the entire region a few hours before sunrise. Outside of the
aforementioned area of predominant rainfall, total snowfall amounts
should range from 1 to 3 inches for this event, with the highest
amounts in southwestern Indiana. All measurable precipitation should
be gone by Monday afternoon. More cold air will blast in behind the
system, providing highs Monday and Tuesday below freezing, and lows
Monday night 13 to 15 degrees, with wind chills around zero.
