Wintry mix coming: 1-3 inches snow, light ice

Tuesday afternoon forecast for the Tri-State

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A Winter Weather Advisory will go into effect at 10 p.m. Tuesday until 10 p.m. Wednesday as a wintry mix of snow and ice bears down on the Tri-State.

Total snow accumulations of 1- 3 inches are expected along with a light glaze of ice.

Watch for slippery road conditions tonight that could turn hazardous and also impact the Wednesday morning commute.

The snow should begin after 8 p.m., developing south and pushing north. It will change to freezing rain and then all rain by the morning commute.

However, patches of ice still will be possible through the early part of the commute.

School closings and delays also could be likely.

Areas to the north will be hit the hardest and will have a particularly dangerous morning commute.

That includes Butler, Warren, Clinton and Highland counties in southwest Ohio and parts of southeastern Indiana.

More than an inch of rain is possible Wednesday and Wednesday night.

Some minor flooding also could occur.

The high temperature Tuesday will be 37 degrees.

Our overnight low will fall to 32.

Temperatures will rebound into the upper 40s by Wednesday afternoon.
