The 9 First Warning Weather Team has issued a 9 First Warning Weather Alert Day for Saturday due to the threat of freezing rain and ice.

Light freezing rain could cause road issues as the rain continues. This includes the majority of our viewing area.

Patchy ice is possible everywhere, but the better chances to encounter icy roads are for areas north of the Ohio River.

The National Weather Service has issued a freezing rain advisory that continues until 1 p.m. Saturday.

Another round of rain/freezing rain will begin to move in through about noon. It looks like most areas will be just above freezing, so our concerns for any additional icing are mainly confined to areas north of Cincinnati.
