...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM NOON TODAY TO
MIDNIGHT CST TONIGHT...

* WHAT...Rain will change to snow this afternoon and early this
evening. Accumulations of 1 to 4 inches are expected. Locally
higher amounts are possible. Winds may gust as high as 40 to 45
mph.

* WHERE...The highest snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches, with
locally higher amounts possible, is forecast in a band near the
confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers in southeast
Missouri, southern Illinois, and western Kentucky. Lesser
amounts are forecast to the north near Mount Vernon, Illinois,
and south near the Tennessee border, where totals of 1 to 2
inches are expected.

* WHEN...Rain will change to snow this afternoon for most of the
area, but may wait until early this evening in the Kentucky
Pennyrile area from Owensboro to Hopkinsville. Snow will taper
off from west to east this evening and overnight.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...This potent weather system will bring an
Arctic blast of air with a myriad of impacts. Strong and gusty
winds will impact travel and also bring in cold air with single
digit to lower teens wind chills. Plunging sub freezing
temperatures will create flash freeze and black ice potential
for any residual ground or roadway moisture. In addition, winds
may produce significant visibility reductions where blowing
snow is moderate to heavy.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow...sleet...or
freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for
slippery roads and limited visibilities...and use caution while
driving.

A winter weather advisory for blowing snow means that
visibilities will be limited due to strong winds blowing snow
around. Use caution when traveling...especially in open areas.
