Regional Weather Summary

302 PM CST Wed Mar 5 2014
A persistent cloud cover prevailed over much of the Quad State
area Wednesday, which unfortunately prevented temperatures from
getting very warm. Many communities experienced a light freezing
fog or mist, with morning lows ranging from the mid 20s to around
the freezing mark. Afternoon highs were only able to reach into
mid 30s where significant snow remained on the ground, up to
around 40 degrees in areas with less snow.
Our main forecast concern for the next couple of days are the
temperatures, which are critical for snow and ice removal. Overall
the forecast guidance varies considerably so we will take a
reasonable blend, with an overall slow but steady warming for the
rest of the week. By late Friday, an upper level disturbance will
move into the mid Mississippi Valley area, ushering in our next
chance of light rain or snow Saturday and Saturday night.
Accumulations with this weekend system will on the light side,
nothing like we had experienced last weekend.
