Special Statement

Statement as of 1:16 PM CST on February 11, 2016

Expires 4:00 AM EST on February 12, 2016


... Light dusting tonight...

Another band of light snow will be setting up tonight. It is too
uncertain to determine just yet exactly where that will be... but
it looks increasingly likely that a light dusting of snow will
occur late tonight and early tomorrow morning. This will impact
communities from around Pinckneyville and Benton Illinois... eastward
toward the Evansville Metro area... and southeastward toward the
Madisonville Kentucky area.

Even snowfall amounts of one quarter to one half inch... like is
expected... may cause cold roadways to have some slick spots
tomorrow morning on the commute to work or school... particularly
untreated Road or walk surfaces. So be especially cautious as you
travel late tonight and early tomorrow... and make sure to check
your latest forecasts and updates for any changes.
