CINCINNATI — It's another brush with a storm system bringing us just a minor amount of snow for the Greater Cincinnati area. However, Northern Kentucky could see travel issues and everyone will feel the arctic blast again this week.
The result of this snow is a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is out again for Northern Kentucky and Southwest Ohio.

In the meantime, temperatures stay on the mild side overnight, only cooling to 34 degrees. The sky will be mostly cloudy ahead of our approaching cold front.
A cold front will pass through the area early in Wednesday's forecast. This means that our warmest air of the day happens prior to the noon hour. It will also produce some spotty light rain in the late morning and early afternoon hours. But the temperature will be falling quickly behind the front. This starts the process of turning the rain into a wintry mix and eventually snow.
Most of the wintry mix will happen between 2-5 p.m. Then the colder air turns this precipitation over to snow closer to 5-6 p.m. It doesn't look like everyone will see snow out of this system. Currently, the best chance is along and south of the Ohio River. The models keep wobbling between snow as far north as Cincinnati with a fresh dusting tomorrow evening, to a cutoff 30-40 miles south of the city.
At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if we get a quick dusting up to around 1.5" of snow on Wednesday evening with the best chance south of the Ohio River. This could impact travel mainly after 5 p.m. to midnight. It looks like the best chance for snow is south of us into central and eastern Kentucky yet again.
