Winter Weather Advisory Goes Into Effect at 6 Thursday Night

Downed trees could be a concern in some areas due to the storm. Monday has a slight chance of rain and snow between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. with a chance of snow for the rest of the night, Tuesday and into Wednesday.

The weather service urges caution while shoveling.

For today, temperatures will warm to around 60 degrees with a low rain chance through 7 p.m. Expect unsafe travel conditions late Friday into Saturday as a layer of ice is covered by snow. New snow and sleet accumulation of 8 to 12 inches is possible, the Weather Service said.

The storm is expected to gradually end on Friday. There's a chance of snow on Sunday and Monday.

The National Weather Service issued a flood watch for the area that will go into effect Friday morning into Saturday morning.

The weather service in Huntsville expects the rain to change over to a wintry mix later this morning and spread from west to east across north Alabama.

Travel will be unsafe, particularly in the Friday morning commute. Similar amounts are expected in the counties surrounding Lexington in Central Kentucky, according to the weather service.

The system is expected to exit the region Friday night.

A Winter Weather Advisory was issued Thursday afternoon and is in effect through Saturday morning for the entire Miami Valley.

The cold front that is bringing this wintry mixture will drop temperatures dramatically.

Gusting winds may also cause power outages.

Ice accumulation could be a tenth of an inch of more. Accumulations of snow, if any, are under an inch. This is a positive as it could cut down on the ice accumulations out to our west but reagrdless there is still the possibility of freezing rain. "This evening an arctic front will move through".

A Winter Storm Warning means a significant combination of hazardous winter weather is imminent for a certain location.

After the rain moves out, the NWS says "acolder air mass will move in Saturday night through Sunday night as Canadian high pressure builds".

Counties along the OH and Mississippi Rivers are expected to get a tenth of an inch of ice or less. The rain may remain watery but bitterly cold as it falls on West Virginia, Pennsylvania, central and upstate NY to northern New England. Temperatures reach the middle to upper 20s under partly sunny skies.

After that, however, it's back to below-freezing temperatures.

Snow was expected to develop later in the morning in the Topeka area.

The now tapers off late tonight for SE parts of the state by midnight. "But the later they can come in the more it will allow that to happen".

Saturday and Sunday's cooldown is due to an expected shift in the jet stream, placing OH in an area of strong upper-level flow from the north ushering in frigid, arctic air.
