...A Period of Heavy Wet Snow Impacting Parts of Southeast
Missouri and Southwest Illinois This Evening...

A short period of heavy wet snow is expected this evening in the
hilly terrain north and west of Cape Girardeau. The snow will be
heavy enough to produce a coating to an inch of slush, primarily
on grassy areas. Some slick spots are possible on roadways,
especially bridges.

An observer reported snow in Patton in northern Bollinger County
Missouri at 630 pm. The snow was heavy enough to cover the
ground. This area of snow will spread northeast across the
Perryville area of Missouri, possibly reaching Pinckneyville
Illinois this evening.

The precipitation will diminish to patchy drizzle from southwest
to northeast by 11 pm.

...SPOTTY LIGHT ICE ACCUMULATIONS POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE
NORTH CAROLINA MOUNTAINS OVERNIGHT...

Precipitation is starting to develop over the North Carolina
mountains this evening. Although temperatures will initially be
above freezing, with just rain across much of the area, the
falling precipitation is expected to cool the atmosphere, with
near-freezing temperatures developing in locations along and east
of the Blue Ridge escarpment overnight. Affected areas will
include Black Mountain, Little Switzerland, Jonas Ridge, Upton,
and nearby locations. This will result in spotty freezing rain
and light ice accumulations in these areas, with any icing
expected to remain mostly confined to elevated surfaces.
Temperatures are expected to warm above freezing by around
daybreak, allowing precipitation to change back to rain.

...HEAVY RAINFALL TODAY INTO FRIDAY WILL LEAD TO AN INCREASED THREAT
OF LANDSLIDES IN WESTERN WASHINGTON...

Lowland snowmelt last week and recent rainfall has increased soil
moisture to high levels across western Washington. With the ground at
threshold levels of saturation, the moderate to heavy rainfall of 1
to 5 inches inches that is expected through Friday will put extra
pressure on soil instability, leading to an increased threat of
landslides.

At least one landslide has already been reported in at the coast
yesterday. More landslides are possible.

Areas above 6000 feet in elevation will see mostly snow and not be
affected.

For more information about current conditions, visit
www.weather.gov/seattle, select Hydrology, and then scroll down
for the links to the landslide information pages.
