Wintry Mix Possible Sunday

Jan 5, 2018

Much of southern Illinois, southeast Missouri and southwest Indiana could see a mix of wintry precipitation this weekend.

Michael York is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Paducah says it looks like the bulk of the precipitation will hold off until late Sunday afternoon and Sunday night.

"It probably will start out as a mix of sleet or freezing rain as temperatures drop during the late afternoon and early evening. Overall, though, it looks like mainly rain after midnight. We're expecting a south wind to start on Saturday night and continue through Sunday and Sunday night."
York says we could have slick road conditions late Sunday afternoon and Sunday night before the freezing precipitation turns into rain.

He says the school and work commute on Monday morning should be much better.
