WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
317 AM CST TUE MAR 3 2015

SUNSHINE HELPED RETURN THE MERCURY TO THE 40 DEGREE MARK FOR A
LUCKY FEW MONDAY...WITH THOSE NOT QUITE THERE STILL MANAGING TO
WORK THEIR WAY ALL THE WAY UP INTO THE UPPER 30S. THIS HELPED
PROMOTE A LITTLE MORE MELTING OF OUR RECENT SNOW COVER...WITH
VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY SUGGESTING MAINLY SOUTHERN LOCALES HIT
HARDEST STILL SHOWING SOME WINTRY COVER.

THAT COVER IS LIKELY TO BE MELTING SOON...AS RAINS SET IN WITH
WARMING TEMPERATURES LATER TODAY AND TONIGHT. THE COMBINATION MAY
RESULT IN SOME FLOODING...WITH WIDESPREAD 1 TO 2 INCH RAINS
FORECAST ALONG WITH SNOWMELT. A FLOOD WATCH IS IN EFFECT FROM
MIDNIGHT TONIGHT THROUGH MIDDAY TOMORROW FOR MOST OF WESTERN
KENTUCKY.

HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL RANGE FROM THE UPPER 40S NORTH TO AROUND 60
SOUTH TODAY...THEN COOL TO THE UPPER 20S NORTH TO MID 30S SOUTH
TONIGHT. THAT IS WHERE THEY WILL STAY TOMORROW...AS RAINS CHANGE
TO SLEET AND SNOW WITH SIGNIFICANT ACCUMULATIONS FORECAST. WINTER
STORM WATCHES REMAIN IN EFFECT WITH WARNINGS STARTING TO SHOW UP
TO OUR SOUTH.

A REINFORCING SHOT OF ARCTIC COLD BLASTS IN FOR WEDNESDAY NIGHT
THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT. SINGLE DIGIT LOWS...AND TEENS AND 20S FOR
HIGHS...WILL BE COMMONPLACE. THE COLDEST NIGHT LOOKS TO BE
THURSDAY NIGHT...WITH THE MERCURY PLUMMETING TOWARD ZERO AND
NEGATIVE WIND CHILLS BY EARLY FRIDAY MORNING. MANY WON`T SEE THE
FREEZING MARK AGAIN UNTIL THE WEEKEND...AS WE EASE INTO A
MODERATING TREND.
