Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 3:31 am CST on February 12, 2016


... Light snows across much of the area this morning...

One area of mainly light snow will spread eastward from southeast
Illinois through west Kentucky by daybreak. The southern edge of
the band is roughly along a Metropolis Illinois to Cadiz
Kentucky line. Up to an inch of snow will be possible in areas
from Vienna Illinois to Princeton and Elkton Kentucky.

A second area of lighter snows will move east southeast... generally
along the I-64 corridor in southern Illinois through daybreak... and
then across southwest Indiana through mid-morning. A dusting up to
a half inch of snow will be possible... with the greatest amounts
generally north of the Interstate.

The minor accumulations of snow generally below 1 inch may result
in some slick spots on area roads this morning... especially prior
to sunrise. Bridges and untreated... lesser traveled roads will
have the most problems. Motorists early this morning should slow
down and allow extra time to reach their destinations. Conditions
should improve quickly after sunrise.

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
548 am CST Friday Feb 12 2016 


Update... 
issued at 548 am CST Friday Feb 12 2016 


Not a fun morning to keep up with radar trends. Currently have IFR 
snows over southeast Illinois that are drying up fast as they 
cross the Wabash according to kvwx. Considered issuing a quick 
advisory for the evv area, but with those radar trends, figure the 
Special Weather Statement will suffice. We are now up to one report of snowfall this 
morning. 


The aviation section has been updated for the 12z taf issuance. 


&& 


Short term...(today through Saturday night) 
issued at 318 am CST Friday Feb 12 2016 


A nice band of light to briefly moderate snow has developed as 
advertised by almost all short range guidance, just to the 
northwest of a kcgi to kpah to Cadiz, Kentucky line. Used that consensus 
as the starting point for hourly pops this morning. If anything, 
it appears that the snows are making faster progress eastward 
across the region. IFR level snows have been observed from kmdh 
and kmwa to km30 and k5m9, but we have not received any snowfall 
reports to really get a feel for how much it is accumulating. 
Given the rather short residence time at any one location, the 
general amounts advertised by the evening shift, up to an inch, 
seems reasonable. Will not be issuing an advisory, but will 
continue with the Special Weather Statement treatment. 


Of less certainty is the impact associated with a separate area of 
light snow moving east southeast from the kstl Metro area. 
Pops were increased to low end likely levels generally along 
I-64. It should make it to the Wabash by 12z and then fizzle out. 
This may be overdone, given latest radar trends with the snow 
eroding on its southwest side. Any impactful snow may pass just 
north of our County Warning Area. Will also try to address with the Special Weather Statement. 


The 00z models have remained consistent in the Arctic surface high 
building into the area this afternoon. This will result in gusty 
northwest winds developing southward through the afternoon, but 
the cold advection will not really get going until tonight. 
Temperatures in the north may level off at some point this 
afternoon, but a true non-diurnal trend is not expected. 


With the surface high really building in tonight, skies should 
clear and northwest winds will continue to gust. Strong cold 
advection is expected, and the consensus of guidance brings lows 
mostly in the 10-15 degree range. Some northern locations may see 
single digits. Wind chills will bottom out from around 5 below 
zero in the north to 5 above in the far south. Will give this a 
mention in the severe weather potential statement. 


With a cold start and rapidly increasing clouds on Saturday, 
temperatures throughout the region are not likely to climb out of 
the 20s. Areas along I-64 and the evv tri state may even struggle 
to reach 20. 


The surface high will shift quickly east of the area heading into 
Saturday night, allowing winds to become easterly. As our next 
storm system digs southeast through the northern plains, there is 
growing support for some light snow to reach northern portions of 
the forecast area by 12z Sunday. The 00z GFS and NAM were holding 
the snow off, but the 06z NAM is trending toward the more 
aggressive and consistent European model (ecmwf). Decided to introduce 20-30% pops 
mainly over southern Illinois and northern portions of southeast 
Missouri after midnight Saturday night. With easterly winds and 
plenty of clouds, tried to go closer to the relatively warm European model (ecmwf) 
MOS for lows Saturday night. 


Long term...(sunday through thursday) 
issued at 318 am CST Friday Feb 12 2016 


The medium range models seemed to be in decent agreement overall 
with the timing of a developing mid level shortwave responsible for 
snowfall generation at the beginning of the extended period. On 
Sunday, surface dewpoints should be on the rise as low level winds 
will have some kind of southerly component. Meanwhile, low surface 
pressure is forecast to develop and move across the deep south, and 
this feature was best depicted by the Gem/ECMWF. The 00z European model (ecmwf) 
continued with a general tendency to have greater quantitative precipitation forecast than the other 
models, especially over western Kentucky Sunday night. The initialization 
blend provided modest qpf, with the highest numbers in western KY, 
however not all of that will be frozen. 


Model thermal profiles indicate the pcpn event will start out as 
snow Sunday, with a chance of sleet late Sunday night as the column 
begins to warm a bit. Monday morning, there should be a rather quick 
changeover to rain, with rain forecast everywhere by the afternoon. 
Any lingering pcpn Monday night may change back to snow before 
ending. As expected, the forecast snow amounts have fluctuated from 
forecast to forecast, and at this time it looks like a couple of 
inches total of snow can be expected for the region in general, 
which is less than what was forecasted 24 hours ago. 


A second clipper-type shortwave is forecast to affect the pah 
forecast area for a brief time Tuesday. The pcpn should start out as 
snow in the morning and change to rain later as surface temperatures 
jump well into the 40s. 


In the latter half of the week, rising mid level heights will 
contribute to significant warming. Under mostly clear skies, highs 
Thursday are expected to be in the 50s across the entire area.

Aviation... 
issued at 548 am CST Friday Feb 12 2016 


IFR to MVFR snow will impact kevv and kowb for next couple of 
hours, but VFR conditions should return quickly once the snow 
ends. An Arctic surface high will surge across the area this 
afternoon. This will lead to north or northwest winds gusting up 
near 20kts, and MVFR ceilings. Lots of guidance indicating MVFR 
ceilings well ahead of the Arctic air, but latest observational 
evidence supports a later arrival. That said, once they arrive 
they may linger well into the evening before scattering out. The 
gustiness will also settle down through the evening.
