Bands of heavier snow expected; winter storm and flood warnings in effect

Friday, March 7, 2008

KIT DOYLE ~ kdoyle@semissourian.com Birds and snow mixed above a cluster of cows Friday morning along County Road 318 west of Cape Girardeau.
The winter storm warning continues and a flood warning is in effect, according to National Weather statements issued at 7 a.m. This morning's flurries, which led to a dusting of snow, will give way to bands of heavier snow as the day progresses.

Expect visibilities will drop down to a mile or less, with northwest winds of 15 to 20 mph and gusts up to 25 mph. Expect some slick spots while driving this morning.

The following Missouri counties are affected: Bollinger, Butler, Cape Girardeau, Carter, Mississippi, New Madrid, Perry, Scott.

In Illinois, Alexander, Ballard and Union counties are also being warned.

The flood warning is for the Mississippi River at Cape Girardeau and Thebes, Ill., affecting Cape Girardeau, Petty and Scott counties as well as Alexander County, Ill.

Heavy rainfall has caused river levels on the Ohio River to rise.

Are you kidding me. I was in St. Louis on Tuesday. It took me 2 1/2 hours to get from the 270 and I-55 ramp to the airport. That is about 18 miles. Now that was a blizzard. This "blizzard" hasn't even covered the dead grass in my yard
