Here's the story...we are getting snowfall for Thursday and the amounts are minor. However, we are calling for a 9 First Warning Weather Alert Day because of the timing.
Quite frankly, it couldn't be worse. It appears the snow will start Thursday afternoon and continue through early Thursday evening. While we are look at 1"-2" in Greater Cincinnati, this kind of small amount can still cause traffic headaches or even hazardous conditions. You'll notice the map below.
A bit less than earlier... These totals fluctuate as the computer forecasts model the path of the low pressure. Tonight, our models have it a bit further south, so less snow. This will likely change & we're tracking the changes. @wcpo #cincywx pic.twitter.com/R7sVvbsGoQ

In the meantime, the weather remains seasonal through Wednesday afternoon. However, the arctic air kicks in Wednesday night and we'll drop to the mid teens by Thursday morning. From that point until Saturday midday, we won't rise above freezing during the day or night!
After our snow on Thursday, skies clear out and we see mostly sunny skies until Sunday when rain is likely. Temperatures will also climb for the weekend back to the 40s.
Not as cold, windy
Windy-Gusts to 35mph
