Stoddard County, MO - The National Weather Service in Paducah, KY has issued a Special Weather Statement for Stoddard County.
...Isolated thunderstorms expected today, with a few storms producing small hail...
An impressive early December weather disturbance will move across the Quad State region today.
There appears to be enough cold and unstable air aloft with this disturbance to generate a few thunderstorms as the system moves through the area.
Although the thunderstorms are expected to remain below severe limits, a few of the thunderstorms may generate some very small hail.
Rainfall associated with this fast moving weather system will remain quite light, generally a tenth of an inch or less.
The entire weather system should move east of the Quad State region by sunset today.
Stoddard County, MO - The National Weather Service in Paducah, KY has issued a Special Weather Statement for Stoddard County, Missouri.
...Wind Gusts 30 to 40 mph possible across parts of the Quad State region today...
Widespread wind gusts of 20 to 30 mph are expected to develop over parts of southeast Missouri and southwest Illinois around or slightly before 6 am CST, spreading south and east through the day in advance of a fast moving weather system crossing the area.
As the day progresses, wind gusts between 25 and 35 mph will become more common.
Wind gusts approaching or briefly exceeding 40 mph may be possible in an area stretching along and south of a line from Naylor, Poplar Bluff and Cape Girardeau in southeast Missouri, onward to Vienna in southern Illinois, and stretching northeast to Henderson and Owensboro in northwest Kentucky today.
The strongest winds will likely develop over southeast Missouri near 8 am CST and spread quickly across parts of extreme southern Illinois, the Purchase and Pennyrile areas of west Kentucky through 1 pm CST.
Some of the wind gusts may be locally enhanced by nearby shower activity.
The gusty winds will likely toss around unsecured objects left outdoors and could break small tree limbs. If these tree limbs fall on power lines, a brief interruption in electricity may result.
Drivers of high profile vehicles may experience difficulty driving due to the stronger winds.
These winds should rapidly subside after sunset across the Quad State region.
For those of you that are preparing for the return to Standard Time (or not) this weekend, it is always good to make sure you have a fresh set of batteries in your NOAA Weather Radio in the event of Severe or Winter Weather!
