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

    .. TWO TO THREE ROUNDS OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS AND HEAVY RAINFALL LIKELY BY TUESDAY NIGHT...

    THERE IS A MODERATE RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH TONIGHT ACROSS PARTS OF SOUTHEAST MISSOURI... MAINLY WEST OF A LINE FROM DEXTER TO MARBLE HILL. THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE REMAINDER OF OUR REGION.

    SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ARE FORECAST TO DEVELOP OVER SOUTHERN MISSOURI TODAY... AND THEN MOVE EAST ACROSS THE QUAD STATE REGION TONIGHT. ACROSS THE MODERATE RISK AREA... THE POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR A SIGNIFICANT OUTBREAK OF SEVERE STORMS THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING... WITH LARGE HAIL... DESTRUCTIVE STRAIGHT LINE WINDS... AND A FEW TORNADOES POSSIBLE. ACROSS THE SLIGHT RISK AREA... ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SEVERE STORMS ARE LIKELY. IN ADDITION... LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL ACCOMPANY ANY THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT.

    AFTER A LULL IN THE ACTIVITY EARLY MONDAY... ANOTHER ROUND OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS IS LIKELY MONDAY INTO MONDAY EVENING. THIS ROUND OF STORMS HAS THE POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE ISOLATED TORNADOES... LARGE HAIL... AND LOCALLY DAMAGING WINDS.

    A THIRD ROUND OF STORMS IS POSSIBLE ON TUESDAY... HOWEVER THE SEVERE WEATHER RISK TUESDAY APPEARS TO BE RELATIVELY LOW COMPARED TO THE FIRST TWO ROUNDS.

    EACH ROUND OF THUNDERSTORMS WILL PRODUCE LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL... WHICH MAY EVENTUALLY LEAD TO SOME FLASH FLOODING IN AREAS THAT RECEIVE MORE THAN ONE ROUND OF VERY HEAVY RAIN.

    NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO REVIEW YOUR SEVERE WEATHER ACTION PLANS. MONITOR THE LATEST WEATHER INFORMATION AND BE READY TO IMPLEMENT THOSE PLANS.

    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.

    Possibility of Snow on Sunday

    Possibility of Snow on Sunday
    Submitted by
    Dee Loflin, SMT Manager/Editor

    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.
