NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
252 PM CST Sun Dec 14 2014
Another gray morning full of low clouds occurred as low temperatures
dropped into the mid to upper 40s. Clearing did take place fairly
quickly over much of Southeast MO this morning extending into
southwest IL this afternoon but the cloud shield is having a hard
time breaking up over the eastern half of the area. Temperatures
have warmed nicely under the sunshine in Missouri with low 60s
common. The rest of the area is seeing mid afternoon temperatures in
the 50s aside from a few locales in the far east toward Evansville
which are struggling to even reach 50. Southeast winds have been
around 10mph today.
Low pressure taking shape in the Central Plains will move
northeastward toward the Great Lakes on Tuesday. This will drag a
cold front through the Quad State on Monday resulting in rain
chances increasing after midnight tonight and lasting into Monday.
Rainfall totals don`t look very impressive with most locations
seeing under a quarter of an inch. Colder air funnels in behind this
system for mid week through next weekend with high temperatures
falling below normal into the mid 30s to low 40s with lows down
into the 20s most nights. A couple storm systems might affect the
area later this week with the first being Wednesday night into
Thursday and the second Friday into Saturday. Consistency is lacking
right now regarding the details so rain or snow is possible. Stayed
tuned for further updates on the progressive energetic pattern that
is set to occur.
