The National Weather Service in Wilmington has issued a winter weather advisory from 8 p.m. tonight through 10 a.m. Friday.
A wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain is expected to turn into all freezing rain by 10 p.m. tonight, said meteorologist Jim Lott.
By early Friday, a tenth of an inch of ice could accumulate, which might make for a rough morning commute.
Today is expected to be another colder-than-normal one for this time of year. It’s 20 degrees with a wind chill around 10 at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. The high temperature later will only climb to 33.
Winds will remain arctic with chills in the teens and low 20s.
