Statement as of 9:08 PM CST on December 09, 2013
... Snowfall expected overnight...
Snowfall is expected overnight across much of southern
Illinois... southwest Indiana and portions of southeast
Missouri... mainly north of a Greenville Missouri... Marion
Illinois... Rockport Indiana line. Amounts will generally range
from 1 to 2 inches. The higher amounts around two inches or
so will be most likely up along the Interstate 64 corridor.
We cannot rule out slightly higher amounts in this area
given the snowpack and cold start... and with snow already
increasing across the region. A few locations could close
in on 3 inches or so.
Some additional impact to travel cannot be ruled out overnight.
The snow will completely exit the region by around daybreak or
just after daybreak Tuesday. Continue to monitor our forecasts
for updates. A Winter Weather Advisory may be required.

... A quick shot of snowfall expected tonight and very early
Tuesday over part of the quad state region...
A fast moving weather system will move across parts of the quad
state region tonight and very early Tuesday. This will bring a
small accumulation of additional snow mainly to northern parts of
Measurable snow is expected to develop and move across the Ozark
foothills in southeast Missouri... toward the Mississippi River
near Perryville Missouri... by mid evening. This snow is expected
to then spread eastward across southern Illinois and into
southwest Indiana by midnight. The snow will continue working its
way into northwest Kentucky and the remainder of southwest
Indiana through sunrise on Tuesday.
The highest snowfall amounts should be between an inch and an inch
and a half... and that should occur roughly along and north of a
Benton Illinois... to Mount Carmel Illinois... to Santa Claus
Amounts approaching an inch may be possible as far south as an Ava
Illinois... to Carmi Illinois... to Chrisney Indiana line... while
lesser amount to just a light coating are expected toward the
southern extent of the band... from near Doniphan Missouri... toward
Vienna Illinois... and Greenville Kentucky.
The forecasted snow amounts should have little impact on area
travel... save for reduced visibilities less than a mile in heavier
snow bands. The greatest chance of seeing a reduction of
visibilities due to snow will be along the Interstate 64 corridor
in southern Illinois and southwest Indiana.
This snow will completely exit the region by or before 10 am CST
