Thursday is our 9 First Warning Weather Alert Day and it will continue through the Friday morning commute. You'll notice below that Thursday will see freezing rain, sleet and snow all on the same day.
We could see 1/4" - 1/2" of icing around the Tri-State...if we see the high end, significant impacts will develop. Snowfall will range 3"-5" around Cincy & more snow north. End result will be a major winter storm for us. @wcpo #cincywx #Cincinnati pic.twitter.com/pVMBI14j6w

Freezing rain and sleet will develop which could make some roads slick.
We will see a break in the precipitation briefly for a couple of hours in the morning. But don't worry...the main act begins at 9 a.m.
Morning Drive - Afternoon
Freezing rain and sleet will fall for several hour into the early afternoon before we see a changeover to snow about 3 p.m.
Most of the Tri-State will see snow into the early evening and some of the snow intensity could reach 1" an hour.
The biggest impact from this storm is ice and that's the most important take away from the forecast. Plan for impassable roads. Be prepared for power outages. Be prepared to just stay put for 24 hours.
