10:00am Weather Update

At 10:00am temperatures around the region range from 30° in Mt. Vernon, Illinois to 42° in Poplar Bluff, Missouri. Snow is reported in Carbondale, Carmi, Mt. Vernon, and Sparta, Illinois and visibilities have dropped to 1/2 mile in Mt. Vernon and 1 mile in Carbondale.

As is usually the case "clippers" don't bring much snow to southeast Missouri, western Kentucky, and extreme southern Illinois.

Data coming in from last night is supporting the above statement. The NAM computer model seems to have the best handle on this "storm".

Here is a look at a regional view of snowfall forecast amounts from this morning's run of the NAM:

Here is a look at the same model in the KFVS viewing area:

It is still looking like the precip should be moving in later tonight as the upper-level low moves in. This will be the snow-maker for the area with this storm. The heaviest snow will be over southern Illinois (Northeast sections of southern Illinois).
