CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Thursday will be a First Alert Weather Day with the potential for accumulating snow in the afternoon and into the evening.

Chief Meteorologist Steve Horstmeyer says because surface temperatures will be in the 20s and the air will be even colder, dry snow is in the forecast. In addition, because there will be a great deal of moisture in the air, the snow should fall as fluffy, small light flakes.

Steve says models have pushed the center of the storm a bit further south resulting in a decrease in the amount of snow expected.

In the Dayton, Ohio area the result will be flurries, while in a band from Lexington, Kentucky to Huntington, West Virginia 1″ to 2″ could accumulate. Here in the Tri-State, it looks like up to 1″of snow will accumulate which will be better to remove with a broom than a shovel.

Steve says if the model trend continues, we could see accumulations closer to 1/2″.
