Snow is coming: Here’s the latest timeline

Catherine's Monday afternoon forecast

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Monday is a FOX19 NOW First Alert Weather Day with our first measurable snowfall of the season coming.

A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect 6 p.m. Monday until 8 a.m. Tuesday.

One to 2 inches of snow will arrive by tonight as temperatures free fall, likely causing some slick driving conditions.

Some areas in the northern Cincinnati suburbs in Butler and Warren counties could see isolated higher amounts.

Temperatures are in the mid-to-upper 40s and 50s across the Tri-State.

Rain will begin this afternoon with temperatures remaining in the 50s.

By 4 p.m., rain will be crossing the Tri-State as colder air begins to move in.

A wintry mix of rain and snow will be possible.

By the evening, temperatures near or below freezing as the rain turns into all snow between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.

This will be the time when roads will have the potential to turn slick and you’ll want to give yourself plenty of extra time, especially on overpasses and rural, untreated roads.

Bitter cold air will settle in overnight and stick around Tuesday.

The morning low will fall to near 20 with single digit wind chills.

Steady snow showers will taper by 4:30 a.m. with just light scattered snow showers.

Roads will may remain slick even after snow has decreased due to cold conditions.

Temperatures will rebound a bit into the low 30s Wednesday and into the 40s Thursday and Friday.

Overnight lows will remain colder than normal for this time of year, though, and in the 20s.
