No changes to Sunday snowfall forecast seen yet. Band of +6" will be southwest & south of us, it still appears. Accumulating snowfall may occur as far south as Mississippi with this storm.
Here, looks like 1-3" still, highest amount south, lowest amounts northward.
We will continue to monitor closely. If the band shifts north of south, it would alter totals.
Regardless, gusty northeast to north, then northwest winds 25-35 mph will result in lots of blowing & drifting of any snowfall that occurs here.
It will be especially bad where that +6" band sets up (most likely south of our area with road drifting shut). That band will be closer to the strengthening surface low, so the winds will be a bit higher in that heaviest snowfall. So, southern Missouri, southern Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky may see some gust to 45 mph with that snow, shutting that area down.
The unusually cold weather will dominate much of next week. It will be the coldest such period for March since 1978 or 1960 for the Lower 48 & the coldest here since either 1978 or 1960.
Next systems to watch for snow is a vigorous clipper Thursday & powerhouse storm system around March 10-11 with rain & mix to all snow with high winds.
