Sunshine to Snow

A delightful start to our weekend! Refreshing sunshine and unseasonably warm lower 50s as a cherry on top! A big thank you to our loyal Channel 4 viewer, Treva for snapping and sharing this beautiful capture from Rock Island today.

Hope you got out and soaked it up! Clouds are on the incline and a view from space confirms it. A system over the Central Plains is shifting towards the south and the east, headed to the Mid State.

If you’re heading out this evening, you’ll remain precip-free, you’ll just want a few extra layers. Temperatures will remain in the lower 40-degree range before midnight, then lower 30s to follow.

Plenty of moisture combines with sub-freezing temperatures leading to light snow showers late overnight into the early morning on Sunday. Let’s check in with Futurecast for timing of it all…

Pause. See the additional colors on Fturecast? Some pick and green? The pick indicates where we’ll see more of a rain/snow mixture and green indicates plain ‘ol rain. So….with temperatures warming into the lower 40s (well above freezing) by the afternoon, you can count on a shift in precipitation type throughout the day. Also note: bulk of the moisture remains east of I-65. Unpause.daphne-icast-temperaturedd-rpm-12km-evening5

Once we get into the evening, tempertures dip low once again, to below freezing. This will transition precipitation back into the form of snow. Not a lot though, and still mainly for the Cumberland Plateau.dd-rpm-12km-evening6dd-rpm-12km-evening7

Here’s what I expect in terms of snowfall accumulation potential. Higher terrain along the Plateau (BLUE) can expect anywhere from one to two inches. Areas under the TURQUOISE, 0.5″ to 1″. All else? Most will see about a trace, up to 0.5.” Enough to make roads slick. You know the drill, just use your common sense and take it easy!

Be sure to download our FREE ‘WSMV WX’ app for updates. You can even pop open the radar and track the showers yourself. Perfect if you’re on the go.dt_wsi-digital-devices
