CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A big system will dive south and east from the Northern Rockies bringing the chance of snow to the FOX19 NOW viewing area Sunday

Chief Meteorologist Steve Horstmeyer says he low will stay west and south of the area through Saturday night. The center of the storm will strengthen over the Deep South and it will head northeastward roughly following the crest of the Appalachian Mountains. That path will put the western edge of accumulating snow over the FOX19 NOW viewing area Sunday.

How far west the snow shield extends is the crux of the forecast problem. Most models put the 1″ accumulation line near I-71 with deeper accumulations farther east. In this case, a shift of 10 miles east or west will mean a big difference in snow totals at any location.

The accumulations will begin before dawn Sunday and accumulations will stop late Sunday evening with flurries continuing into Monday.

FOX19 NOW will continue to track this storm closely.
