Here's the issue for the morning...
Temperatures will sit right around 32 degrees when some light rain begins to fall around the Tri-State. So, from 4am to 7am, we'll see a chance for an isolated slick spot around here. After 8am, temperatures will rise past freezing and highs will hit near 40 degrees, by 3pm, keeping the precipitation as rain.
These spotty showers will last through the afternoon where some areas, likely north of Cincinnati, could see a rain/snow mix into the evening. I don't expect any accumulation, but again it could lead to an icy bridge or overpass. After 8pm, temperatures will fall back below freezing and some areas could see a changeover to flurries or light snow.
We won't see more than a dusting, if that, across the Tri-State by Friday morning. Friday will start mostly cloudy before increasing sunshine. Highs only reach near 30 degrees.
Saturday will be quiet and dry with mostly sunny skies as highs rebound to the mid 30s. Finally, we are keeping an eye on a potential snow maker on Sunday. Early indications point to this starting as light snow Sunday morning. Near the river, the precipitation will mix with some rain midday which will cut down the accumulation. Areas north of Cincinnati, where the precipitation could stay frozen, could see a light accumulation of around an inch of snow.
