CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A First Alert Weather Day is being issued for Tuesday.

A First Alert Weather Day is a heads up to FOX19 NOW viewers to let you know that weather may be a problem.

On Tuesday morning, wet snow may create a few slick spots for the morning commute and slow your progress. Because air temperatures will be just colder than freezing and road temperatures will be a few degrees warmer than freezing, it adds up to a wet to slushy event, not a widespread slick morning.

Accumulations of snow will range from zero to as much as 1.5″, but most of the snow will melt as it hits road surfaces making for a wet morning. For a short time, some roads may see a light, slushy accumulation before it melts.

The snow ends before 10 a.m. in the FOX19 NOW viewing area and the homebound commute will be on mostly dry roads.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for parts of the Tri-State on Tuesday.

We may see a few flurries Wednesday and a few sprinkles Thursday, but the weather remains basically dry until Jan. 25.
