...Wet Start to Weekend Outlook...
...Confidence Still Exists for Some Accumulating Snows, especially
North, Saturday Afternoon into Saturday Night...

The models are honing in on what looks to be a soggy start to the
weekend. Estimated forecast storm total rainfall for Friday night
through Saturday averages from one inch across our north, to
closer to 1.5 inches across southern portions of western Kentucky.
These amounts will be falling over grounds that have recently
received good rains, so be aware that rivers, creeks, and streams
may rise more quickly, and streets and low lands could inundate a
little more quickly than usual.

Rain is expected to change over to a period of snow during the
late morning and afternoon over southeast Missouri, southern
Illinois and far southwest Indiana. The transition will continue
farther southeast through western Kentucky late in the day and
during the early evening. There is still the potential for at
least some minor accumulating snows, especially over portions of
southeast Missouri, and in locations along and north of the Ohio
River.

Blustery north winds Saturday afternoon into Saturday night could
lead to some blowing snow, and will drive temperatures down into
the teens and 20s. Patchy black ice is a possibility for drivers,
especially on bridges and overpasses. In addition, wind chill
values by Sunday morning are expected to reach the single digits
to near 10 degrees at most locations.
