Rain, snow and arctic cold air ahead

Winter Weather Advisory begins at 6 p.m.

Light, scattered rain showers are falling across the Tri-State as we start the day. Temperatures are falling from the mid 40s to the mid 30s as we head through the morning rush. I wouldn't rule out seeing a few snowflakes mixing in to the north and northwest. But Cincinnati and all points south and east will only see rain this morning.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for most of the Tri-State and begins at 6 p.m. today. It will continue until 6 a.m. Wednesday. Spotty snow showers will fall during this time with 1-3 inches of snow possible.

Chance of rain/snow early Monday before chance of snow showers

Monday, we're expecting rain showers to mix with and gradually change over to snow showers by the late afternoon. That mixture is possible after lunchtime and we should change over to all snow by 6 to 8 p.m.

Snow showers could bring light accumulations of around a half inch of snow overnight. Snow squalls are possible too, so be prepared for visibility drops.

Rain to snow showers Monday afternoon

Your 9 First Warning is for the Tuesday morning commute as we'll have light snow on the ground and still falling in some areas. Spotty, light snow showers will fall during the day on Tuesday. Temperatures will only top out at 28 degrees for a colder day. A secondary front will bring even colder air into the Tri-State late Tuesday into Wednesday and reinforce another wave of scattered snow.

By the time we get to Wednesday, the bigger story will be the very cold air. Temperatures are only expected in the low 20s and upper teens. Then overnight, we drop to 9°F for a low on Thursday morning.

How much snow can we expect? Snow accumulations from 1-3 inches from Monday night into Wednesday are expected with much of that occurring Tuesday. The disorganized nature of the snow showers and squalls will give some of you very minor accumulations, while other spots get a bit more. But this is NOT going to bring even coverage of snow for the Tri-State. It will be very hit or miss.
