    UPDATE: Significant Sleet and Snow Expected Sunday Night
    March 01st 2014 by Jeff Huffman
    UPDATE: Significant Sleet and Snow Expected Sunday Night
    A major winter storm will affect much of the central U.S. Sunday and Monday, dumping several inches of snow after laying down a coating of freezing rain and sleet in many areas.  The precipitation will come in waves and not all at once.  The first wave of winter weather will mainly affect northern and central Missouri, where 4 to 8 inches of snow will fall Sunday.  The second wave will have the greatest impact on Southeast Missouri and Stoddard County, likely arriving Sunday evening and overnight, ending midday Monday.  Travel is not advised anywhere in the region beginning Sunday afternoon through Monday afternoon.  

    Latest data suggests the atmosphere will be colder aloft, likely preventing a significant build up of ice on trees and power lines from freezing rain in Stoddard County.  Rather, minor amounts of freezing rain will occur first Sunday afternoon and evening, followed by a changeover to several hours of heavy sleet Sunday night, then ending as a few inches of snow Monday morning.  The combination of all three of these precipitation types, along with bitter temperatures in the teens and single digits following the storm, will make travel EXTREMELY hazardous for many hours after the precipitation has ended.  

    My forecast amounts are below (margin of error +/- 1"):

    DEXTER:  0.25" freezing rain, 1" sleet, 4" snow
    POPLAR BLUFF:  0.25" freezing rain, 0.75" sleet, 5" snow
    SIKESTON:  0.5" freezing rain, 1" sleet, 3" snow
    CAPE GIRARDEAU:  0.25" freezing rain, 0.5" sleet, 6" snow

    Wind Damage Possible in Southeast Missouri Thursday


































    A developing line of thunderstorms capable of producing damaging wind will race across eastern Missouri Thursday afternoon ahead of a cold front.  The severe risk, including isolated tornadoes, is much higher as this line reaches Tennessee, Kentucky, Southern Illinois and Indiana.  However, wind gusts of 40 to 60 mph will be common with the squall line as it passes through Southeast Missouri between 4 and 7pm Thursday.  Estimated arrival times are 4 to 5pm in Poplar Bluff, close to 5pm in Dexter, and between 5 and 6pm in Sikeston.  When the skies threaten, residents and motorists in Stoddard County are encouraged to seek shelter indoors, preferably away from windows, trees and power lines.
