Weekend Snow?

Models have been trending cooler, giving us a better chance for some snow mixed with rain this Saturday night through Sunday.  At this time though, it appears the best chance for measurable snow will be north of the Ohio River, with about 2 inches or less possible. South of the Ohio, temperatures are still expected to be slightly ABOVE FREEZING, but we are close enough to the borderline that it could cause problems, and of course, snow falling, could lower temperatures to BELOW FREEZING.  Keep in mind...this could CHANGE, and if it does, we'll post an updated forecast.  In the meantime, just giving you a heads up to keep an eye on developing weather conditions this weekend!

 Your can hear my forecasts each weekday on Newstalk 94.7, 95.5, 570AM and 1320AM, along with The Mix 94.7 and Willie 102.1.  Remember, when the power's out, you can still hear our forecasts and live reports on these stations, too.

DANGEROUS COLD Moving Into The Region

An Artic BLAST of COLD AIR is moving into the region Wednesday.  Our high temperature Wednesday will be reached during the pre dawn hours, and during the day the temperature will be dropping through the teens to the single digits. A stiff North wind will drive wind chills down to below zero.  Wednesday night expect temperatures in the single digits, dropping to overnight lows near ZERO! There's a slight possibility of some light snow or flurries but no real problems with snow are expected.   Temperatures won't recover much on Thursday, with high temperature readings reaching only the low 20s.

Don't forget to take proper precautions and avoid the outside if possible on Wednesday and Wednesday night.  Especially vulnerable are the elderly and very young, and of course, you'll want to make proper arrangements for outdoor pets (provide them with a source to stay warm or bring them inside).

Our Chances for a White Christmas???

There actually IS an outside shot at a White Christmas for us, but it's very small!  After rain Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, there's a chance we could see the rain mixed with snow before ending early Christmas morning.  Just a slim chance we could see enough for a White Christmas, BUT it's not out of the question, and there's still plenty of time for things to chance between now and then!

Possible Snow Wednesday Night Into Weekend!

We could be looking at snow beginning Wednesday night into Thursday morning, and then again Friday into Saturday. All this as low pressure develops south of our region and then moves closer.  Right now, it STILL appears to be possible accumulations of 2 inches OR LESS.  In fact, might now see that much at all IF ANY.  Temperatures will be right on the borderline!   STAY TUNED!

Possible Freezing Rain Tonight And Tomorrow Morning!

Watch out overnight, and through midday Monday for a chance of freezing rain, and freezing rain mixed with rain. While we're not expecting BIG amounts, we ARE anticipating a chance that we could see some problems with your morning comute, through midday, especially on bridges and overpasses! Allow extra time. Leave for work early. Take it slow. Do NOT use your cruise control!

Wet Weekend Warmup

So NICE that the frigid temperatures are gone and actually ABOVE AVERAGE temperatures are on the way for the weekend, but NOT without cost.  We'll have a chance for showers actually beginning in earnest Saturday evening, and ESPECIALLY on Sunday.  Could also see a thunderstorm but at this time, not expecting anything severe! All this as the southerly flow picks up ahead of an approaching low pressure system which should arrive just to our west on Sunday.

Now for the GOOD NEWS:  High temperatures Saturday should approach 60 and Sunday's highs could get into the low 60s!  If you're planning on anything outdoors....Saturday is definitely your day. Sunday....not so much....BUT at least it will be above average temperature wise.
