4:50pm Weather Update

Temperatures are still relatively warm in southeast Missouri, southern Illinois, western Kentucky, and northwest Tennessee.

Below is a look at surface observations around the Midwest at 4pm CT.

For us to start talking about an accumulating snow we are going to need to get our temperatures down. So far today, temperatures have been slow to cool. In fact, temperatures through the central and southern part of the KFVS viewing area has remained stationary all day.

A Winter Weather Advisory continues for the counties listed on the previous post through Saturday morning.

At this point, I'm not too bullish on the snow potential around the area. All models indicate that we should be all snow at this point. I just stepped outside and there were a few rain drops still falling.

Temperatures should begin to fall off later tonight. As they do so, it will be easier to work some of the snow down to the surface. There is a better chance for snow the farther north you go.
