  • The National Weather Service in Paducah, Ky., has issued a winter weather advisory
    for quick bursts of snow that could be heavy from early this evening to midnight tonight.* LIGHT SNOW SHOULD BEGIN FALLING OVER SOUTHEAST MISSOURI DURING THE MID TO LATE AFTERNOON HOURS. THIS SNOW COULD QUICKLY BECOME HEAVY AT TIMES IN BANDS ACROSS THE REGION. THIS AREA OF PRECIPITATION WILL RAPIDLY MOVE EAST INTO SOUTHERN ILLINOIS...WESTERN KENTUCKY AND SOUTHWEST INDIANA EARLY TONIGHT. THE SNOW WILL LIKELY TAPER OFF JUST AS QUICKLY AS IT BEGAN OVER SOUTHEAST MISSOURI EARLY TONIGHT...THEN END OVER THE REST OF THE REGION BY AROUND MIDNIGHT.* THE MAIN IMPACT WILL COME WITH BURSTS OF LOCALLY HEAVY SNOW IN EAST TO WEST BANDING PRECIPITATION. WHERE...AND HOW NARROW OR THICK THESE BANDS OF SNOW BECOME WILL DETERMINE HOW MUCH SNOW A GIVEN LOCATION RECEIVES. AT THIS TIME...IT SEEMS LIKE MUCH OF THE ADVISORY AREA WILL SEE UP TO A QUICK INCH OR SO OF SNOW. HOWEVER...THERE WILL LIKELY BE LOCALLY HEAVIER BANDS THAT PRODUCE A QUICK 2 TO 3 INCHES OF SNOW. MOTORISTS SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR RAPIDLY FLUCTUATING VISIBILITIES TO UNDER A QUARTER MILE AT TIMES.* OTHER IMPACTS INCLUDE THE FACT THAT MUCH OF THE SNOW WILL OCCUR DURING INCREASED TRAFFIC BETWEEN 4 PM AND 7 PM...ESPECIALLY IN SOUTHEAST MISSOURI...SOUTHERN ILLINOIS AND THE WESTERN TIP OF KENTUCKY AND SOUTHWEST INDIANA.
