Winter Weather Advisory
Issued: 2:43 PM CST Feb. 13, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 3 am Sunday to 3 am CST
Monday...

The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a Winter
Weather Advisory... which is in effect from 3 am Sunday to 3 am
CST Monday.

* Timing: after midnight tonight areas of light snow will begin
moving southeast across the region. Toward sunrise a mixture of
freezing rain and sleet is possible mainly over the western
portions of southeast Missouri. Snowfall is expected to increase
through the morning hours over the northeast two thirds of the
quad state while the mixture of freezing rain and sleet will
migrate farther east into far western Kentucky. Snowfall will
begin to slowly taper off from west to east in the afternoon but
the freezing rain/sleet mixture will push farther east. Sunday
night a rain/freezing rain mixture over the entire area should
transition to all rain except over portions of southwest
Indiana.

* Main impact: snowfall totals should top out in the 2 to 3 inch
range over southeast Illinois and southwest Indiana... then
taper off to a half inch or less over far southeast Missouri.
Ice accumulations should be light and generally limited to the
southwest half of the quad state region. After another cold
night tonight... all precipitation should immediately begin to
stick... especially on elevated surfaces such as bridges and
overpasses. This will likely make travel on Sunday hazardous.

* Other impacts: this will likely make travel on Sunday
hazardous... therefore motorists should slow down and allow
extra time to reach your destination. Put extra driving space
between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead of you.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow... sleet... or
freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for
slippery roads and limited visibilities... and use caution while
driving.
