Highs today ran 31-35 over the viewing area:

Patchy freezing fog, some freezing drizzle & mixed snow & snow pellet showers are possible tonight with lows in the upper 20s.

Watch for a few slick spots in the morning, even if the pavement just looks damp or wet.

Some scattered snow showers are possible Tuesday afternoon.  I cannot completely rule out localized dustings of less than 0.5".

Highs will run in the low to mid 30s.

A few snow showers & flurries are possible Wednesday with highs in the 30s after some patchy freezing fog & upper 20s in the morning.

An area of 1-3" snow may occur from soutehrn Missouri to western Kentucky.

After some patchy freezing fog in the morning, Thursday looks to have a mostly cloudy to cloudy sky with a few flurries.

Note wave of snow in Iowa & northern Missouri moving into Illinois Thursday night.

This should pass our area Friday morning.  Very minor accumulation is possible.  Mostly cloudy skies should follow with a melting of any snow with a high near 38.

Storm system Saturday should bring some rain, then snow.  We should reach near 40, then fall to 31 with very minor snowfall accumulation late Saturday-Saturday night.  Some snow showers are possible Sunday morning as temperatures fall to 24-28.

A big warm-up should occur on strong southerly winds to 35 mph Monday with highs 50-55 late in the day with mostly cloudy skies.

Rain & isolated thunder are likely Tuesday, before quickly changing to brief freezing rain, sleet & then snow.

The cold will come in so fast & undercut, that it looks to produce a band of this freezing rain & then sleet behind the front.  Arctic air rushing in will throw wedge of warmth over the top of it, leading to the icy mix.

A thin veneer of ice is possible, along with a dusting of snow.

Temperatures may tank from 55-60 Tuesday to 8-12 by Wednesday morning with west wind gusts of 40-50 mph.

Temperatures Wednesday may be only run around 10-15 for highs with west wind still gusting to 40 mph, though skies will clear.  Wind chills may drop to -10.

Increasing clouds with highs 12-18 are likely Thursday with wind gusts to 30 mph.

A wave of minor accumulating snowfall is possible Thursday night-Friday morning with temperatures 15-20.

Temperatures should fall Friday with blowing/drifting of the dry, powdery snow with northwest to west winds gusting to 40 mph with single digits.  Wind chills may drop to -20.

Multiple nights below 0 are possible after this.

At this point, the time to watch for a winter storm is February 9-11 with snow, ice with a surge in temperatures to 31-35.

Models are aggressive with 0.90-1.25" liquid amounts.

Temperatures may drop below 0 again after the storm.
