CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Snowfall totals will be lighter in the northern half of the viewing area for two reasons.

First, the cold air in place is drier than expected so much of the snow that falls evaporates before it makes it to the surface.

Second, the storm is a bit farther south than early projections.

Temperatures will be in the 20s with wind chills in the teens.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 10 p.m. Thursday for the following counties: Carroll, Gallatin, Owen, Grant, Pendleton, Bracken, Robertson, Mason, Brown and Adams.


It will be bitterly cold overnight into Friday.

Wind chill factors will be near zero.

The temperature will bottom out around 10 degrees.

We won’t warm up much Friday. It will be sunny, but the high will struggle to reach the low 20s.

Thermometers will slip back into the teens Friday night into early Saturday.

Whatever snow may fall, warmer temperatures combined with sun and then rain will get rid of it this weekend.

Saturday will be sunny with highs in the low 40s.

Rain is expected Saturday night and Sunday morning.

We will start to dry out Sunday afternoon as temperatures push into the upper 40s.
