...WINTER STORM DEPARTS...BUT COLD AIR REMAINS...
The winter storm that brought ice...sleet and snow to the Quad
State region Sunday into early Monday moved completely out of the
area after 10 am CST this morning.
The winter storm produced ice accumulations of 0.10 to 0.3 inches,
up to 3.5 inches of sleet, and up to 4 inches of snow across the area.
Fortunately, there were relatively few instances of power outages, but
several traffic accidents were noted across the region associated with
the winter storm.
The combination of the Arctic air and snow cover helped
temperatures this morning fall into the teens and single digits.
Doniphan Missouri bottomed out at 7 degrees this morning.
Evansville Indiana and Owensboro Kentucky were relatively warm,
sharing a low temperature of 15 degrees.
By 2 pm CST on Monday, skies cleared out across the Quad State
region. Despite the cold temperatures and snow, the sunshine
helped temperatures to rise into the lower to middle 20s.
A couple of fast moving weather disturbances will bring a small
chance for mixed precipitation Wednesday night and Friday night,
with a better chance for rain Saturday and Saturday night.
However, look for temperatures to gradually rise throughout the
week. Most temperatures should rise above freezing for highs on
Tuesday, traveling into the 50s from Friday through Sunday.
