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

    .. SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE LATER THIS WEEK...

    SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE WEDNESDAY INTO EARLY THURSDAY... ALONG AND NORTH OF A STATIONARY FRONT DRAPED ACROSS THE REGION. SOME OF THESE STORMS MAY REACH SEVERE LEVELS... ESPECIALLY LATER WEDNESDAY NIGHT INTO EARLY THURSDAY. LARGE HAIL AND HEAVY RAIN SEEM TO BE THE MAIN THUNDERSTORM RISKS AT THIS TIME.

    IN ADDITION... CONFIDENCE CONTINUES TO GROWN FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT LATER THURSDAY AND ESPECIALLY THURSDAY NIGHT... AHEAD OF AN EASTWARD PROGRESSING COLD FRONT. THE DYNAMICS AND INSTABILITY OF THIS SYSTEM APPEAR AT A MAGNITUDE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING WIDESPREAD SEVERE WEATHER.

    HEAVY RAINFALL IS ALSO A POSSIBILITY WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT. THIS COULD CAUSE FLOODING AND FLASH FLOODING... PARTICULARLY THURSDAY NIGHT... IF HEAVY RAIN OCCURS WITH AN EXPECTED ROUND OF THUNDERSTORMS WEDNESDAY NIGHT INTO EARLY THURSDAY.

    PLEASE STAY TUNED AND KEEP ABREAST OF FORECASTS AS WE HEAD INTO THE MID WEEK TIME FRAME.

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

    ... MIX OF WINTRY PRECIPITATION POSSIBLE SUNDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT...

    LOW PRESSURE OVER THE SOUTHERN PLAINS WILL MOVE JUST SOUTH OF THE QUAD STATE REGION ON SUNDAY. AS THE LOW APPROACHES... IT WILL SPREAD RAIN INTO THE AREA TONIGHT. AT THE SAME TIME... A COLD FRONT IS FORECAST TO PASS THROUGH THE REGION TONIGHT. BEHIND THE FRONT... MUCH COLDER AIR WILL BE DRAWN SOUTHWARD ON SUNDAY... RESULTING IN THE POTENTIAL FOR A MIX OF WINTRY PRECIPITATION.

    WHILE THE POTENTIAL FOR A MIX WITH SNOW ON THE BACK SIDE OF THE DEPARTING SYSTEM HAS BEEN ANTICIPATED FOR SOME TIME... LATEST MODELS NOW SUGGEST THE SURGE OF COLD AIR ON SUNDAY WILL BE MUCH FASTER THAN EARLIER INDICATED. THIS MEANS THAT MORE OF THE PRECIPITATION WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO FALL AS SNOW... SLEET... AND PERHAPS A LITTLE FREEZING RAIN BEFORE IT COMES TO AN END SUNDAY NIGHT.

    AT THE PRESENT TIME... INDICATIONS ARE THAT THE GREATEST ACCUMULATION OF SNOW AND SLEET WILL OCCUR ACROSS NORTHERN AND CENTRAL PORTIONS OF THE QUAD STATE REGION. THIS WOULD HAVE THE GREATEST IMPACT ON TRAVEL IN SUCH COMMUNITIES AS CAPE GIRARDEAU MISSOURI... CARBONDALE AND MARION ILLINOIS... EVANSVILLE INDIANA... AND HENDERSON AND OWENSBORO KENTUCKY. IN THIS ZONE... AT LEAST 1 TO 2 INCHES OF SNOW AND SLEET MAY ACCUMULATE SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. EVEN IN AREAS THAT RECEIVE MAINLY RAIN... SUB-FREEZING TEMPERATURES SUNDAY NIGHT MAY RESULT IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF ICING... ESPECIALLY ON ELEVATED AND UNTREATED SURFACES.

    AS THIS STORM APPROACHES... MODIFICATIONS TO PRECIPITATION TYPE... AMOUNTS... AND THE LOCATION OF GREATEST ACCUMULATION ARE ALL POSSIBLE. IT WOULD BE WISE TO KEEP IN TUNE TO THE LATEST FORECASTS ON THIS DEVELOPING WINTER WEATHER EVENT.

    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
