CHANCE FOR WINTER WEATHER THIS WEEK

The listening area has a chance to see some wintry weather this week.  Warning Coordination Meteorologist Jim Kramper at the National Weather Service office in St. Louis said some winter weather will move into the area sometime between Wednesday and Thursday evening.  There is a lot of cold air which will gradually erode over the next few days.  At this time they are still trying to determine exactly where the precipitation will hit but we have a pretty good chance of seeing some sleet, freezing rain, and maybe a little snow.  Stay tuned to WGEL for the latest weather information.
