12:45am Winter Storm Update:

I am heading home for the night. I don't know about you, but I'm exhausted!

So far we haven't gotten many reports in, however it is the middle of the night. People are sleeping.

Cape Girardeau airport manager Bruce Loy sent me an email letting me know that the airport has 3/4" to 1" of sleet/ice accumulations on all surfaces. Thanks Bruce!

I have also seen some reports of 3.25" of sleet/snow reports coming in from just northwest of Farmington, Missouri.

I have a feeling we will be dealing with a lot of sleet overnight through early Tuesday morning. Forecast models started to hint tonight at a mid-level low developing and moving through Southeast Missouri and Southern Illinois by late morning/early afternoon. If this is the case, our lull might be Tuesday morning and things could pick-up again by late morning/early afternoon.

I am still expecting another push of moisture/energy by late afternoon/evening Tuesday.

Stay tuned....

In the mean time, feel free to leave reports of what you are seeing at your place!
