CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The first of two cold fronts is moving through the Tri-State Monday evening, bringing a big temperature change for the morning.

After a high of 50 degrees Monday morning, temperatures will be about 35 degrees colder -- and this is just an appetizer. The main course will be served Wednesday morning when a short-lived, biting, bitter, blast of arctic air takes up residence.

What meteorologists call a secondary front will lead this air mass into the region with some light flurries or snow showers Tuesday evening. Accumulations are expected to be less than 1 inch and likely less than 1/2 inch.

Wind chills TUE morning will be either side of, but close to zero. Be aware that by Wednesday morning the wind chill temperatures will be dangerous and cold enough to cause frostbite with exposure times as brief as 10 minutes.

A warm up is on the way and the forecast has high temperatures in the middle 50s by Monday.
