Snow North Will Taper, Then Rain This Afternoon & Evening

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Snow continues into early afternoon in areas north and east of the 275 loop. While accumulation will be minor, reduced visibility and sloppy travel will remain. Rain will fall Thursday afternoon into the evening hours with a high of 38 degrees.

Look for a dry Friday before a very active weather weekend with FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAYS Saturday through Monday

Saturday morning we’ll have another wet to icy mix by dawn with areas from Connersville to Wilmington getting snow.

During the late afternoon and early evening, cold air arrives and temperatures will drop changing the rain to snow across the area. Snow totals are likely to be significant but the big problem is likely to be reduced visibility from blowing and drifting snow as winds gust to around 45 mph from before dawn Sunday into Sunday afternoon.

Our heaviest snow accumulation comes Saturday night into Sunday morning with the huge drop in temperatures making the snow conversion moderate. We could be talking about 5 to 6 inches of snow on the ground by Sunday morning, but this is a conversation starter and we will adjust.

By Sunday evening, wind chills will be below zero... and Monday morning look for wind chills as cold as -20 degrees in open areas and actual temps as cold a -5 degrees.
