Wednesday Evening 12/19 Forecast: A Big Mess and Big Change

WIND ADVISORY in effect from 4 PM Thursday to 4 PM Friday except Fayette and Union Counties in Indiana.
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for Fayette and Union Counties in Indiana 4 PM Thursday to 4 PM Friday.

Good evening everyone! Because we are dealing with a big mess of a storm, we’re going to focus exclusively on that. The long range looks fairly quiet, anyway.

TONIGHT: Expect showers to develop after midnight. Tonight’s lows will be in the middle 40’s.

THURSDAY: Thursday is the nasty day. Rain will continue through most of the day, as a cold front to our west pushes east. Temperatures will start tumbling on Thursday afternoon as the front comes through, so we’ll be into the low 40’s by evening. The other big story is the wind. Winds will be ramping up out of the southwest initially, but then backing around to the northwest by evening with the frontal passage. Gusts to 45 mph will start to affect us in the late afternoon which is why the advisory goes into effect at that time.

THURSDAY NIGHT: We bottom out in the middle 20’s with some snow showers around. The changeover will take place from west to east as we go through the evening. Winds will remain strong and gusty out of the northwest at 20-30 mph with gusts to 50 mph.

FRIDAY: Friday’s highs AT BEST look to end up in the LOWER 30’s (I’m playing conservative and going with 33), and we could still have some snow showers around, again particularly north and west of the city. Early indications suggest there might be some minor snow accumulation, up to 2″ north of town and tapering the further south you go. By the time you reach the southern counties, I wouldn’t be surprised to see accumulations less than half an inch. Winds will still be gusty but diminish during the afternoon.

FRIDAY NIGHT: I wouldn’t be surprised to have lows all the way into the upper TEENS into the Cincinnati metro. A lot of that will be pending what happens with the snows to our north. A couple flurries will be around, otherwise expect clearing and cold conditions. What a way to kick off true winter!
