Good Friday morning everyone! We're off to another frigid start with temperatures in the single digits, with some of us north of Cincinnati down to the zero. Wind chills in SE Indiana are falling into the -10 degrees territory, so there is a WIND CHILL ADVISORY for Union, Fayette, and Franklin counties until 11 am.
For the rest of us, we're seeing wind chills at or below zero as well, so make sure you and the kids are bundled up as you head out the door to start your Friday. Light snow showers and flurries are moving through, so so do not be surprised to see a dusting on your car as you head out, especially for areas from Cincinnati south and east. Temperatures this afternoon will only reach the upper teens, which will challenge today's record for the coldest high temperatures! We're forecasting 18 degrees, which would tie the record for the coldest highs.
Our next storm system arrives Saturday night into Sunday morning, and it does have the potential to produce a little bit of snow. Right now, it looks like accumulations would be 1" or less, with perhaps a little more north of Cincinnati. This is something we're watching for you closely, so be sure to check in often to see how this forecast evolves. We will warm up enough Sunday afternoon to see any snow switch over to all rain, so that is why right now, we're not expecting significant problems with this storm.
As this system exits Sunday night, there could be a little bit of snow with it, but not a major snow threat. Monday looks a little less active, but heading into Tuesday, there's a chance for a significant surge of warmth and rain, and that may bring flooding concerns as we see snow melt combined with perhaps over an inch of rain.
