Winter Storm Warning: Snowfall tapers off by noon

Temperatures plunge tonight for lows near zero

Accumulating snow continues to fall this morning especially south of the Ohio River but this snow is expected to taper off for most of the region later this morning.

The only locations that could see any additional snow accumulation would be south of the Ohio River in Northern Kentucky and in southern Ohio along the river.

A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect for a large portion of Tri-State until 1 p.m. today. The winter weather advisory for Butler and Franklin counties has been dropped.

Winter storm warning continues until 1 pm

Counties under the winter storm warning include:

  • Indiana: Ohio, Ripley, Dearborn and Switzerland
  • Kentucky: Carroll, Gallatin, Boone, Kenton, Campbell, Owen, Grant, Pendleton, Bracken and Mason
  • Ohio: Clermont, Brown, Highland, Adams, Pike, Warren, Clinton and Hamilton

Snow should fade around lunchtime, ending this storm warning. Temperatures will only reach into the low 20s this afternoon. Skies will be partly cloudy.

Snow tapers off later this morning

Today's high temperatures will stay into the low 20s. That may break the record for the coldest high temperature for today's date. Tonight, skies will turn partly cloudy and we'll see temperatures plunge to around zero. The record low is 2 degrees, so we may break that record tomorrow morning.  

Friday, we're beginning to see things finally changing.  Highs will still be well below average, in the mid-20s, but we'll see plenty of sunshine. Saturday - Tuesday, warmer weather begins to move into the Tri-State. As we head into next week, highs in the 40s and even 50s start showing up towards Wednesday!

Many schools announced closings or delays for Thursday across the Tri-State. See the latest closings and delays here.
