Statement as of 2:23 PM CST on January 30, 2015

Expires 7:00 PM EST on February 01, 2015


... Winter Storm Watch in effect from Saturday evening through
Sunday afternoon...

The National Weather Service in St Louis has issued a Winter
Storm Watch... which is in effect from Saturday evening through
Sunday afternoon.

* Timing... rain will change to snow on Saturday evening with snow
continuing on Sunday.

* Accumulations... 5 to 7 inches of snow.

* Winds... southeast wind 5 to 10 mph becoming northwest 15 to 20
mph on Sunday afternoon with gusts up to 25 mph.

* Impacts... the wintry precipitation will likely result in
hazardous travel conditions... especially on bridges...
overpasses... and untreated roads. Parking lots and sidewalks
will become slippery as well.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Watch is advanced notice that severe winter
weather is possible in the watch area... it does not mean it is a
certainty. Those in the watch area should begin preparing in case
the storm does materialize. If you have travel planned... you may
want to adjust your travel time to avoid the storm. Also... you
should use this advanced notice to make certain your vehicle is
winterized. Make preparations at home by stocking emergency
supplies... such as food... medicine... and extra heating fuel...
just in case the storm makes travel impossible. This is
especially important for those living in rural areas.




Special Statement

Statement as of 3:36 PM CST on January 30, 2015

Expires 5:00 AM EST on January 31, 2015


... Winter weather expected across the region this weekend...

A storm system will bring accumulating snow to parts of our
region Saturday night and Sunday. Rain is expected to develop on
Saturday... and then become mixed with and change to snow along and
north of Interstate 70 on Saturday night. By Sunday... snow is
expected along and north of the Interstate 70 corridor... with the
rain gradually becoming mixed with and changing over to snow over
southeast Missouri and southwest Illinois.

Early indications are that the brunt of the storm will impact the
region from southern Iowa across northern Illinois where snowfall
amounts of 8 or more inches are possible. The snowfall amounts
will decrease as you move further south and it appears that 6
inches of snow will be possible over northeast Missouri and west
central Illinois where there is now a Winter Storm Watch in effect
for Saturday night and Sunday. The snowfall will continue to decrease
as you head south... with 1-2 inches along the Interstate 70
corridor... and little or no snowfall accumulation across
southeast Missouri.

There remains higher than normal uncertainty on the temperature
profile of the atmosphere and track of the storm center... thus
changes in the currently forecast snowfall amounts are quite
possible.

Those planning travel across the region Saturday night and Sunday
may encounter hazardous driving conditions... so plan your trip
accordingly. Please be certain to monitor the latest forecast
information... watches... warnings or advisories.
