NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
438 AM CST Wed Dec 17 2014
Tuesday was cold, dreary, and brisk as abundant cloudiness lingered.
Temperatures held nearly steady in the upper 30s to mid 40s. The
clouds persisted into Tuesday night as temperatures fell steadily
through the 30s. Early this Wednesday morning, readings averaged
around the freezing mark with light northwest winds.
High pressure will keep dry and cold weather in place today. Mostly
cloudy conditions will persist as well, but a brief glimpse at the
sun is possible by late morning and early afternoon. The passage of
an upper level disturbance will result in a mixed array of light
wintry precipitation tonight and early Thursday. The precipitation
will be mainly snow and sleet across the northern half of the area,
with more in the way of rain or freezing rain across the south.
The active pattern will continue into late week with yet another
chance of snow--mixed with some rain across the south--Friday night
into early Saturday. At this time, this event has the potential to
bring an inch or two of snow to the heart of the Quad State region.
The late weekend looks dry and cold with more precipitation expected
early next week.
