McLean Severe Watches & Warnings NOAA Weather Radio

Special Statement
Statement as of 4:25 AM CST on March 02, 2015

... Significant snow accumulations possible mid week...

Another winter storm poses the potential for significant snow
accumulations Wednesday and Wednesday night. A strong cold front
will sweep across the quad state region Tuesday night. In its
wake... temperatures will rapidly drop below freezing early
Wednesday.

As the cold air rushes in behind the front... rain is forecast to
change over to a period of sleet before transitioning to snow
Wednesday morning. By Wednesday afternoon... the precipitation
should be in the form of snow across all but southern portions of
western Kentucky... where the transition from sleet to snow may
not occur until afternoon. The snow is forecast to taper off from
northwest to southeast Wednesday night.

Less than ideal confidence in a day 3 event precludes an exact
forecast of snow amounts at this time. However... confidence is
growing that moderate to heavy snow may result in potentially
significant snow accumulations across all or part of the quad
state region Wednesday and Wednesday night. Continue to monitor
later forecasts on this developing winter weather event.
