Last night`s precipitation exited the Heartland early this morning,
leaving snowfall totals from 3 to 5 inches over locations along the
Ohio River and a trace to 3 inches in the surrounding locations.
Overnight lows ranged from 19 in Mount Vernon, Illinois to 28 in
Owensboro. Scattered mid to high level clouds trailing behind the
system have remained over the area, producing intermittent but light
snow flurries. At 2 PM, winds were 5 to 15 knots from the northwest,
and temperatures had rise into the upper 20s and lower 30s.
On Monday and Tuesday, a high pressure system entering the Ohio
River Valley brings arctic air in, keeping highs well below normal
and in the upper 20s. Lows tonight will be in the teens, with wind
chill values tonight will drop into the single digits. For the
second half of the work week, some relief should be felt as sunshine
returns and highs rise back into the 30s and 40s. The next chances
for precipitation return over the weekend as some upper level
disturbances enter the area.
