WIND ADVISORY in effect from 4 PM today to 4 PM Friday areawide.
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for Fayette, Franklin and Union Counties in Indiana and Butler, Warren and Clinton Counties in Ohio from 7 PM tonight to 10 PM Friday.
Good Thursday afternoon, everyone! Tomorrow we’ll go back to the normal 7 day forecast format, but we will focus again on the cold front impacting our area now.
NOW: The aforementioned front is just west of Cincinnati and will push through the area in the next two hours. Winds have already been gusty at times, and a few power outages have occurred as a result. There has even been a house fire reported on Julia Avenue with some downed wires there.
TONIGHT: We bottom out in the upper 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 overnight.
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, particularly north and west of the city. Snowfall accumulations by the time everything ends Friday evening will range from 2-3 inches near I-70, then tapering down to an inch or less south of town. Winds will still gust as high as 50 mph.
FRIDAY NIGHT: I wouldn’t be surprised to have lows all the way into the upper TEENS into the Cincinnati metro, but will currently go with about 22. 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. Winds will FINALLY start to back off as we go through the night. What a way to kick off true winter!
