CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday are First Alert Weather Days.

Thursday will start with a mix of rain, ice and snow. With temperatures near freezing roads for the morning commute will be wet. Isolated spots could have a bit of snow cover or an icy patch, but most areas will be wet.

Friday will be dry.

Saturday morning another wet to icy mix arrives with areas from Connersville to Wilmington getting snow. During the evening cold air arrives and temperatures drop changing the rain to snow.

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