National Weather Service: First accumulating snow of the season possible Thursday

With Arctic air already in place across the region, an upper-level

storm system will produce a swath of light snow, as it swings

through our region Thursday. The initial band of light snow may

reach the Interstate 64 corridor of southern Illinois just prior

to daybreak Thursday, but the bulk of the accumulating snowfall is

expected in the morning hours.

 

1 to 2 inches of snow is possible across the Interstate 64

corridor of southern Illinois and southwest Indiana. The snow is

expected to taper off quickly from west to east Thursday

afternoon. Farther south across the region, a half inch or less

is expected, and much of the area may only see a few periods of

flurries.

 

At this time, considerable uncertainty exists with this storm

system. On the high end, the potential exists for light

accumulations across the entire area, with narrow bands of

enhanced snowfall. On the low end, a very minor adjustment could

result in nothing but flurries across the area. With the cold air

in place, any accumulations would likely create travel

difficulties.

 

Please stay tuned for the latest forecasts and statements on this

potential winter storm system from the National Weather Service in

Paducah, Kentucky.
