Overnight snow for southeast Missouri, southern Illinois and western Kentucky

The National Weather Service has issued Winter Storm Warnings for much of southeast Missouri, southern Illinois and western Kentucky in advance of a fast moving weather system that will bring snow and sleet to the area Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning.

Keep in mind, potential exists for sleet to develop near the Missouri/Arkansas/Kentucky/Tennessee border which could cut in to snow totals.


2"-4": South of a line from Farmington to Harrisburg
3"-5": South of a line from Cape Girardeau to Karnak, IL
4"-6": south of a line from Wappapello, MO to Paducah

One thing that could hamper snow totals is sleet formation. It will be possible to have sleet mix in along Missouri/Tennessee/Kentucky border.

Should be noted the National Weather Service in Paducah has mentioned there is the potential for a few locales seeing up to 8". I think that is entirely possible.

FREAK-OUT-METER: (Scale 0-10 with 0 being less, 10 being highest)

Cape Girardeau - 4
Carbondale - 3
Farmington - 3
Mayfield, KY - 5
Metropolis - 4
New Madrid - 5
Paducah - 5
Poplar Bluff - 5
Sikeston - 5

What are your thoughts on the Thursday-Friday storm? Or is it too early to make predictions on that yet?
