TIMELINE OF THE STORM:
NOW: Do not plan to be on the roads. A thick layer of ice will continue to get worse down to the southeast. Snow will accumulate on top of the ice/sleet in the Cincinnati area. Power outages will continue to happen. I expect another 1"-3" of snow across the areas by morning.
Friday morning: Snow that develops will end just after daybreak. This is just going to prolong the impact of this storm and add insult to injury. Travel is still highly discouraged on Friday morning. Power will still be an issue too.
The rest of the forecast will be quiet...but VERY COLD!. Gradual clearing will bring us to clear skies at night when the arctic air really takes hold. I have lows near zero Friday night into Saturday morning.
The weekend will be partly sunny and cold. Highs won't break freezing on Saturday and rise just above on Sunday.
Light snow - Few areas of moderate snow
Early AM snow
Then mainly cloudy
Turning very cold
