Sunny skies greeted many areas this morning as our weak system that
affected the area yesterday departed to the east. Low temperatures
tanked into the low teens where the clouds cleared the quickest
overnight. Other areas saw lows in the mid to upper teens.
Windchills in the single digits were common making for a frigid
morning. Yet another weak clipper system has moved quickly into the
area this afternoon. Light snow started falling in portions of
southeast Missouri around the noon hour and has spread into southern
Illinois and parts of western Kentucky as of 3pm. A light dusting
has occurred in some spots so far. The intensity of the snow will
decrease heading into the evening hours. Most areas will only pick
up a dusting to a few tenths, but a few areas may see up to around a
half an inch.
Dry and slightly warmer weather is expected on Thursday with highs
mostly in the 30s. Another weak clipper system may produce some
light snow for mainly the Evansville Tri State area on Friday. A
warm up into the upper 30s to 40s is also expected on Friday before
another strong blast of arctic air pushes highs back into the 20s in
most spots on Saturday. A storm system looks to impact the region
later Sunday into Monday that may bring accumulating snows to the
region. Stay tuned to future forecasts as the track and strength of
this system becomes clearer.
