Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 5:10 AM CST Jan. 17, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Confidence beginning to increase for accumulating snows
in some areas Saturday afternoon and Saturday night...

A very potent storm system is expected to move east into the
region on Saturday. After a dose of moderate rains and even a few
thunderstorms late Friday night into the day Saturday, much colder
air will rush into the region from northwest to southeast Saturday
afternoon and evening.

Rain is expected to change over to snow during the afternoon over
portions of southeast Missouri and southern Illinois, then farther
southeast along the Ohio River during the early evening hours.
Though it is still to early to pinpoint exact amounts, there is
now increasing confidence in the potential for at least some
accumulating snows, especially over portions of southeast
Missouri, and in locations along and north of the Ohio River.

Blustery north winds Saturday night could lead to some blowing
snow, and will drive temperatures down into the teens and 20s. In
addition, wind chill values by Sunday morning are expected to
reach the single digits and lower teens in many areas.
