UPDATE: The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for the entire area Monday afternoon warning that 2 to 4 inches of snow – and possibly more in some areas could fall by Tuesday morning.
The snow will start after midnight Monday, peak in intensity around sunrise and taper off after the sun comes up, the Weather Service said.
“It could potentially be bad for the morning commute if we do get that much accumulation,” said Andrew Snyder, meteorologist.
The advisory is in effect from midnight Monday to 11 a.m. Tuesday.
Get out and enjoy the warm weather today – warm, as in 5 degrees above freezing.
Monday will be warmest day this week with an expected high of 37 degrees. Starting tonight Arctic air arrives in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky bringing with it more snow, near-zero temperatures and below zero-wind chills.
An additional 1 to 2 inches of snow could blanket the region starting after midnight Monday and ending about 8 a.m. Tuesday, said Andrew Snyder, meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Wilmington.
“It could potentially be bad for the morning commute if we do get that much accumulation,” he said.
Tuesday’s high temperature of about 20 degrees will come in the morning, then it will just get colder as the day goes on. By Tuesday night the low will hit 5 degrees.
Wednesday will be mostly cloudy with a high of 20 and a low of 12 degrees. Thursday will be the coldest day of the week with the high temperature only reaching 15 degrees and the low dipping down to 4 degrees.
The windchill will make it feel even colder, he said.
“We’re not expecting very strong winds,” Snyder said. But add the wind to the already cold temperatures and there could be wind chills from 0 to 10 below zero on Tuesday and Thursday nights, he said.
Friday will be 10 degrees warmer with a high of 25.
There is a warm up for next weekend, Snyder said.
“We’re talking a relative warm up,” he said. “Saturday and Sunday it looks like we might be around or just above the freezing mark.”
