The mercury will soar to an unseasonably warm 63 degrees today, but major changes are ahead in our forecast.
A burst of warm, southern air has kept temperatures above normal so far this week. There’s a slight chance for spotty showers today, mainly after noon. It will be mostly cloudy.
Tonight will remain mild with a low of 59 degrees.
The chance for rain will jump to 60 percent by Thursday as a strong cold front starts to slide into Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, bringing a wintry mess of rain, sleet and snow.
The weather system will be followed by a blast of arctic air from central Canada that will throw our region into the deep freeze over the next several days.
Thursday night is when we’ll see the big transition. Rain is likely before midnight before changing to a mix of rain and sleet early Friday.
The overnight low will fall to 32 degrees. Up to a half inch of accumulation is possible by daybreak.
