    Stoddard County, Missouri - The National Weather Service in Paducah, Kentucky has issued a Special Weather Statement for Stoddard County.

    ... MIXED WINTRY PRECIPITATION EXPECTED TUESDAY AND TUESDAY NIGHT...

    A STORM SYSTEM CURRENTLY COMING ONSHORE IN THE SOUTHWESTERN UNITED STATES WILL RAPIDLY MOVE NORTHEAST TOWARDS THE QUAD STATE REGION OVER THE NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS. AS IT APPROACHES... A MIX OF WINTRY PRECIPITATION IS FORECAST TO SPREAD ACROSS THE AREA ON TUESDAY. THE WINTRY MIX WILL BE AT ITS MOST INTENSE TUESDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING... PRIOR TO TAPERING OFF TUESDAY NIGHT.

    AT THIS TIME... THE POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR MODERATE SNOW AND SLEET ACCUMULATIONS OVER NORTHERN PORTIONS OF SOUTHEAST MISSOURI... SOUTHERN ILLINOIS... AND SOUTHWEST INDIANA. FURTHER SOUTH... MORE IN THE WAY OF SLEET AND FREEZING RAIN IS FORECAST ALONG A CORRIDOR FROM ROUGHLY BLOOMFIELD MISSOURI TO VIENNA ILLINOIS TO EVANSVILLE INDIANA. ACROSS MUCH OF WESTERN KENTUCKY SOUTH OF A MAYFIELD TO MADISONVILLE LINE... MAINLY RAIN IS FORECAST THROUGH THE EVENT.

    DESPITE THE WARMING TREND IN THE FORECAST MODELS OVER THE LAST SEVERAL DAYS... NEW DATA AVAILABLE OVERNIGHT IS NOW BEGINNING TO LEAN IN A COLDER DIRECTION. COMPLICATING MATTERS IS THE FACT THAT THE STORM RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TUESDAY EVENT WILL NOT ENTER A MORE DENSE OBSERVATION NETWORK UNTIL LATER TODAY AND TONIGHT. A SHIFT IN THE STORM TRACK NORTH OR SOUTH COULD RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT MODIFICATIONS TO THIS FORECAST AS THE EVENT DRAWS CLOSER.

    TRAVEL WILL LIKELY BE IMPACTED ACROSS A PART OF THE QUAD STATE REGION ON TUESDAY. CONTINUE TO MONITOR FORECASTS AND STATEMENTS FOR THE LATEST ON THIS UPCOMING WINTER STORM.

    Snow Likely in Southeast MO on Super Bowl Sunday
    February 01st 2014 by Jeff Huffman
    Snow Likely in Southeast MO on Super Bowl Sunday

    A fast-moving but ill-timed winter storm will blitz Southeast Missouri with a mixture of sleet and snow on Super Bowl Sunday.  The colder air required for the sloppy mess will arrive late Saturday night and early Sunday, with temperatures falling below freezing when showers end briefly as sleet or snow with little or no accumulation.  Following this front will be another weak disturbance flying in from the southwest, pulling moisture northward into the cold air.  A mixture of freezing rain, sleet, and snow will develop across much of central and northern Arkansas Sunday morning, quickly spreading northeast across Southeast Missouri by Sunday afternoon.  Although amounts will be relatively light, the fast-hitting nature of this system combined with the timing when many people will be on the move to and from their Super Bowl parties, makes it especially hazardous.  

    The air will likely be cold enough north and west of a Corning, AR to Sikeston, MO line for mostly sleet and snow from this event.  This includes Dexter, and in these locations accumulations will range 1 to 2 inches where sleet mixes in initially, to as many as 4 inches near a Poplar Bluff to Cape Girardeau line where it will be nearly all snow.  Temperatures during the event will be falling into the middle and upper 20's by Sunday evening, likely resulting in snow-covered roads through Monday morning.  

    TIMING AND AMOUNTS:

    Margin for error is +/- 2 hours on the timing and +/- 1" on amounts

    • Dexter: starts Sun 2p, ends Mon 4a - 4"
    • Sikeston: starts Sun 3p, ends Mon 5a - 3" (sleet/snow mix)
    • Poplar Bluff: starts Sun 1p, ends Mon 3a - 5"
    • Cape Girardeau: starts Sun 6p, ends Mon 4a - 3"
    • Kennett: starts Sun 2p, ends Mon 5a - 2" (sleet/snow mix)
