Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 9:48 PM CST on February 9, 2016


... Wind chills to dip near zero at several spots overnight...

With the departure of snow to the east after midnight, the focus
will be toward colder wind chills through daybreak on Wednesday.

With temperatures expected to persist in the teens under
persistent northwest winds, wind chills are will dip into the
single digits. By daybreak, wind chills will range from near five
above along the southern border of southeast Missouri and west
Kentucky, to below zero along the Interstate 64 corridor across
southern Illinois and southwest Indiana.

If you must be outdoors for a long period of time late tonight or
during the commute to work or school, be sure to put on layers of
clothes to insulate you from the cold. Heat loss is most
significant from the top of your head, as well as from your hands
and feet, so keep them covered.

Wind chills will slowly improve through the morning hours on
Wednesday.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
327 am CST Wednesday Feb 10 2016 


Short term...(today through Friday night) 
issued at 236 am CST Wednesday Feb 10 2016 


Dealing with localized snow bands/streamers again this morning. 
Tho not as widespread as yesterday, the band over the Paducah 
Metro area has put down another coating of snow, so will need to 
monitor once again for last minute advisories. Will start off with 
localized special weather statements for now, and monitor how 
things progress as we head toward the morning commute. Will be 
interesting to see if salt put down yesterday will still be 
effective given temps in the low 20s, or if traffic has already 
removed most of it. 


Weakening clipper system will drop SSE through the plains today 
and tonight. Looks to be a high pop/low quantitative precipitation forecast event...mainly along 
the MS river from swrn Illinois/se MO southeastward into the wrn tip of 
Kentucky. Thinking is another light coating (dusting to less than an 
inch) of snow could occur in some areas. Could be minor issues if 
anyone gets a quick burst right as the late day/evening commute 
approaches, but too early to make that call at this time. 


Weak high pressure will settle into the Midwest/Ohio Valley 
regions on Thursday, bringing dry and chilly conditions. We will 
likely see a bit of a moderation in temps by Friday, before the 
next shot of cold Canadian air arrives Friday night. 


Long term...(saturday through tuesday) 
issued at 236 am CST Wednesday Feb 10 2016 


The medium range models were in reasonable agreement in their 
depictions of the overall pattern across the Continental U.S.. early in the 
period, another Arctic air mass will surge into the pah forecast 
area on deep northwesterly flow, dropping the dewpoint numbers into 
the single digits for most of the weekend. Temperatures should not 
get much above freezing anywhere in our region over the weekend. 
Clouds will be on the increase from the west on Sunday as a mid 
level shortwave begins to dig into the Central Plains. There may be 
enough lift/moisture aloft, and enough moisture advection in the low 
levels, to produce enough snowfall overcome the very dry cold air at 
the sfc by late in the day Sunday, especially in southwestern 
Illinois and southeastern Missouri. 


The models have come together a bit better on timing of this system, 
though differences remain in placement of surface lows. The Gem/ec 
models seemed to favor low pressure over the deep south, which would 
tend to mean an easterly component to the low level winds over US, 
and maintenance of colder air. The ec model was really aggressive 
with quantitative precipitation forecast amounts in excess of an inch. At this time, it seemed 
prudent to acknowledge that there should be enough cold air at the 
surface and aloft for some snowfall to occur Sunday night across the 
entire region, but then a transition should occur to a wintry mix 
and finally rain in at least southwestern parts of the region during 
the day Monday due to warming temperatures. Finer details are a bit 
hard to come by this far out. For this package, an educated guess is 
that the I-64 corridor may get a couple of inches of snow, with 
lesser amounts farther south. Any lingering pcpn should end Monday 
night.

issued at 1137 PM CST Tuesday Feb 9 2016 


The 06z Wednesday weather forecast office pah taf issuance provides a transition to 
VFR conditions for kcgi and kpah, with a slower transition for 
kevv and kowb. The main change is moving from one system to 
another and the intermittent transition in ceiling heights.
