Jennifer Edwards Baker reports:
Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky are in for a bit of unsettled weather over the next several days as winter shifts into spring.
A possible mix of rain, thunderstorms, snow showers and temperatures ranging some 30 degrees – from the upper 20s to the mid-50s – dominate the forecast.
“It’s a roller coaster,” said Scott Hickman, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Wilmington.
It’s still quite brisk this morning at 23 degrees with a wind chill of 17 at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.
Later, the sun will come out as the mercury warms to 42. Skies will gradually cloud up as the day ends. The overnight low will fall to 28.
There’s a 20 percent chance for rain and snow showers late tonight and early Friday before the thermometer soars to the mid-50s Friday and Saturday, more seasonal weather for this time of year.
