Winter Weather Advisory: Wintry mix ahead

Rain - not snow - on Sunday, then cold returns

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has replaced the Winter Storm Watch for most of the Tri-State for Saturday night and Sunday morning.

The advisory is effect from 7 p.m. through 9 a.m. We'll see some spotty rain along with a chance of light snow, freezing rain and sleet for a brief period around midnight. Widespread rain Sunday then light snow showers possible during Monday morning commute. Expect less than an inch of snow accumulation.

As for Super Bowl Sunday, it will be a wet one with up to an inch of rain possible as temperatures rise to near 40 during the day.

Sunday rain with light spotty snow showers after midnight.

Potential Timing:

SATURDAY NIGHT -- A mix of rain, snow and sleet will develop after 10 pm, with less than 1" of snow in some areas north of Cincinnati.

SUNDAY MORNING -- Mainly dry with only isolated rain/snow chance.

SUNDAY AFTERNOON -- This is the period where rain will fall for much of the Tri-State as it now appears this storm will take most of the snow to north of Dayton. 

SUNDAY EVENING -- Rain will slowly begin to switch over to snow showers from north to south after midnight.  As temperatures plummet from the upper 30s Sunday afternoon into the mid-teens overnight, slick spots will develop.

MONDAY MORNING -- Spotty light snow showers and flurries continue, but temperatures will have fallen into the mid-teens, so icy spots are likely with any leftover moisture on the roads. 

As the system departs, much colder air is likely for Monday into Tuesday morning.  Highs Monday struggle to reach the mid-20s. Overnight lows into Tuesday morning will drop into the upper single digits, with wind chills at or below zero.
