After near 52 tonight, another round of rainfall will arrive later tomorrow with a few t’storms possible.

IN TERMS OF WINTRY WEATHER……….

There are two waves of wintry weather with ice & snow in the Corn Belt & Ohio Valley Sunday-Tuesday.

First one looks to be Missouri, Illinois & in our area early Sunday with accumulating ice & some snow.

Second is a band of ice & snow from Kentucky to perhaps southern Indiana Monday to Tuesday-ish.

So, there is wintry weather still on the horizon, but the details have been nightmarish to forecast due to issues with timing, amounts & precipitation type.  Runs today favor earlier wintry precipitation potential & more ice than snow.  We will continue to watch to see if Monday to Tuesday-ish system moves far enough to the northwest to affect us.
