Precipitation on the back side of a strong low pressure system will impact our area late tonight through Wednesday. Precipitation will begin as plain rain overspreading the area from south to north this evening. Around and after midnight tonight, temperatures will drop below freezing from northwest to southeast changing rain over to all snow. Snow will continue through Wednesday becoming lighter during the afternoon hours.
Moderate to heavy bands of snow will be possible Wednesday morning in the Advisory areas shown below where up to four inches of snow will be possible by Wednesday evening. A sharp cut off of significant snow accumulations is expected somewhere near or just south of the Ohio River. Portions of north central Kentucky may see one to three inches of snow (also in the advisory area) while southern Indiana will likely only see a dusting.
As with many winter weather events in the Ohio Valley, the area of snowfall and the amounts could be adjusted in later forecasts as the event approaches. Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio and this website for the latest forecast updates.
