Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 4:43 am CST on January 30, 2015


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

A storm system will bring accumulating snow to most 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.

Although it is too early to pin down exact snow totals... it
appears that 4 to 6 inches of snow will be possible over northeast
Missouri and west central Illinois. The snowfall will decrease as
you head south... with 1-3 inches along the Interstate 70 corridor... and
accumulations of under an inch over southeast Missouri.

Specific snowfall amounts will be extremely dependent upon the
temperature profile in the low levels of the atmosphere... and a
slight warming or cooling of the airmass could make a large
difference in the snowfall that an area receives. Snowfall
forecasts may be adjusted later today and tonight as the
temperature profile of the atmosphere becomes a bit more clear.

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

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION...UPDATED AVIATION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ST LOUIS MO
543 AM CST Fri Jan 30 2015

.SHORT TERM:  (Through Late This Afternoon)
Issued at 354 AM CST Fri Jan 30 2015

Surface ridge to build over region today with sc deck along and east 
of Mississippi River slowly clearing out. Despite plenty of sunshine 
most of the day today, temperatures will remain near normal in the 
mid 30s to low 40s.

.LONG TERM:  (Tonight through Thursday)
Issued at 354 AM CST Fri Jan 30 2015

(Tonight-Monday)

Primary concern in the short range continues to be potential for 
wintry conditions Saturday-Sunday.  00z guidance has come in a bit 
warmer than earlier solutions with regards to ptype, so have 
judiciously trended the forecast a bit warmer...and to a slower 
changeover to snow.  

Precip with upcoming system should be tied to two different 
features...first, the WAA in advance of the system, and secondly 
some wrap around precip on Sunday as secondary shortwave drops into 
the mid-Mississippi Valley in the wake of the main system.  This 
secondary shortwave will likely produce some measurable snow on 
Sunday...especially over the northeast half of the CWA.   However, 
the key to total snowfalls with this storm will likely be tied to 
how quickly the WAA precip can transition from liquid to frozen on 
Saturday night/early Sunday. I've been a bit aggressive in the 
changeover in our far north overnight Saturday night, and when you 
combine this changeover to the lighter precip that should be all 
snow on Sunday snowfall totals are calculated in the 5-6 inch range 
over our northern counties.  This may be a bit high considering the 
850mb low track is directly over our northern counties, but if 
precip can change over fast enough these numbers should be in the 
ball park. Snowfall totals should then drop off as you head south, 
with 1-3 inches along the I-70 corridor.  In our far southern 
counties persistent low level WAA should cause the changeover to all 
snow to be a struggle, so snowfall totals here should be under an 
inch.

Snowfall forecasts will continue to evolve over the next 24 hours as 
we try to fine-tune low level thermal profiles.  Obviously, if the 
changeover to snow in the WAA band is delayed these amounts will 
need to be adjusted down, but as mentioned above even if this 
changeover is significantly delayed Saturday night, some measurable 
snow should still be expected over northeast sections of the CWA on 
Sunday.  

Snow should taper off early Sunday evening, with Canadian high 
bringing another round of cold air and below normal temperatures
to the region Sunday night and Monday.

(Tuesday-Thursday)

Temperatures should briefly moderate on Tuesday, followed by more 
cold air and below normal temperatures for the Wednesday-Thursday 
time frame. Forecasts will carry some low, slight chance PoPs 
Wednesday-Thursday...tied to the next frontal passage.
