From clouds to rain showers Sunday

An arctic blast arrives late next week

We are continuing to see cloudy sky conditions and cold temperatures in the 30s with a slow fall that should keep us slightly above freezing. Overnight lows bottom out near 33 degrees.

Chance of light rain Sunday

We're tracking an area of low pressure in the deep south that is spreading rain upwards to the Ohio Valley. While we'll have a slight chance of rain or even a few snow flurries Sunday morning, a more widespread shield of light rain will likely move in after 1 p.m. That means you'll need the ponchos if you plan on going to the Bengals vs. Eagles game at PBS.

Rainfall totals should be fairly light and in the order of .10"-.20" of rain or less. Rain chances diminish after 9 p.m Sunday night.  Monday will be dry with near seasonal temperatures in the mid to upper 40s. Another system from the south will bring more rain late Monday night into early Tuesday. That could garner .50" to .75" of rain over the area.

Wednesday will be dry and cool with a mix of sun and clouds. An arctic cold front will move in late Wednesday and bring our first chance of light snow shower to the Tri-State this season. It is likely that we'll see rain that transitions over to snow first. Moisture will be limited so at this point we are looking at little to no accumulation. We'll keep you updated on any changes as the system draws closer.

You'll really feel the arctic plunge Friday as morning temps start in the teens and highs top out in the upper 20s.
