Tuesday is a 9 First Warning Weather Alert Day.
A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Brown, Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton, Highland and Warren counties in Ohio until noon Tuesday for heavy snow. 2-5" of snow is possible in these counties, with locally heavier amounts possible. The higher amounts will fall to the northeast.
After noon, the warning drops to a Winter Weather Advisory, which has been issued for the entire Tri-State and will continue until 6 a.m. Wednesday. The advisory area is still expecting 1-3" of snow in general. Remember -- some of this already fell yesterday and melted.
Light to moderate snow continues to fall as you wake up this morning. You'll notice the greatest impact to the roads will be on our side roads, rural roads and neighborhood streets.
It will take a while for snow to cover the highways, but we'll eventually see more slicks spots there as well.
Snow showers will continue to fall through lunch today, especially north of the Ohio River. Visibilities will be reduced at times. A secondary front will bring even colder air into the Tri-State late Tuesday into Wednesday, with more scattered light 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.
An arctic blast of cold air settles in Wednesday through the end of the week with wind chill values falling to near zero by Wednesday morning.
