As I write this, some large snowflakes have started to mix with the rain at Cape Girardeau. With a temperature of 38°F, however, there's no danger of any accumulation.
The official forecast for Cape calls for mostly rain tonight and tomorrow. Some of the computer models tell a different story, with the NAM model generating a very colorful map:
Cape Girardeau sits in the yellow zone for 3 inches of snowfall, with a blob of 6+ inches projected for the Missouri Bootheel. Don't get too excited: this all seems rather unlikely.
The GFS model is more reasonable, but still yields some small accumulations of an inch or less.
In a curious twist, the areas most likely to see snow are to our south and east over southwestern Tennesse and far nothern Mississippi. Those areas have a 10% chance of receiving at least 4 inches of accumulation.
You may remember that northern Mississippi received considerably more snowfall than Cape Girardeau last season, a peculiar trend that might continue.
