Slushy conditions give way to flooded roads

Frank's Wednesday morning forecast

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Wednesday is a First Alert Weather Day. The Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for the Tri-State through the morning.

A mix of freezing rain, rain and ice remains a concern early Wednesday morning with slushy, icy and very wet roads.

Between 5 a.m. and 6 a.m., heavy to steady rain will be the main issue with plenty of standing water.

A band of moderate to heavy rain moved north from Tennessee and overran the cold air in place in the FOX19 NOW viewing area. As the storm wound up, the flow of air from the south increased and temperatures warmed overnight.

While most roads will be just wet during the commute, icy areas could persist in Fayette, Union, Franklin, Butler, Warren, Clinton and Highland Counties.

Traffic will likely be slow Wednesday morning.

Flooding and high water concerns will be the focus throughout the day.

A high of 47 degrees with rain continuing through the early overnight before tapering off is expecte4d.

Dry weather is expected to return Thursday and Friday with partly cloudy skies and temperatures on the way up to the mid to upper 40s.

Rain will return Friday night and Saturday with heavy rain at times and highs on Saturday of 59 degrees.

Sunday through the first part of next week will be dry.

Keep an eye on the Ohio River as we will reach above flood stage again later in the week.
