Statement as of 4:13 AM CST on March 03, 2015

... Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from Wednesday morning
through late Wednesday night...

A Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from Wednesday morning
through late Wednesday night.

* Timing: rain should begin changing over to freezing rain...
sleet and snow from northwest to southeast late Tuesday night
and Wednesday morning. The changeover to sleet and snow may not
occur until Wednesday afternoon over the southern pennyrile
region of western Kentucky. The snow will then taper off from
northwest to southeast Wednesday night.

* Main impact: by early Thursday morning... snowfall totals are
expected to range from 2 to 5 inches along the northern
periphery of southern Illinois up to 6 to 8 inches southeast of
a line from Petersburg Indiana to Carbondale Illinois to Poplar
Bluff Missouri. Locally higher amounts are likely where snow
banding occurs. As much as one inch of sleet may fall prior to
the snow... particularly across western Kentucky and far
southeast Missouri.

* Other impacts: this much snow and sleet will cause significant
travel issues across the region. Isolated power outages will
also be possible. Make preparations now for this upcoming winter
storm. Stay tuned for updates and the probable upgrade to a
Winter Storm Warning later today.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant
snow... sleet... or ice accumulations that would greatly impact
travel. Stay tuned for later statements. This watch will be
upgraded to a warning if winter storm conditions become more
