Wednesday 1/30 Forecast: Rain Today, Snow Showers Tonight and Thursday

TODAY: Rain will dominate the forecast as a very strong cold front moves in. This front should send temperatures tumbling starting in the afternoon, then down to 24 by Thursday morning. The Storm Prediction Center has a SLIGHT RISK for areas east of Cincinnati. Frankly, that’ll likely be dropped by noon, so this will be the only mention of it. A plume of moisture out of the Gulf of Mexico could also result in heavy rainfall this morning, but I don’t expect flooding issues from here. Any leftover rain should end as a few snow showers late tonight.

THURSDAY: It looks like a small system may try to drop some snow on us late tomorrow into tomorrow night. Accumulations won’t be too significant, BUT it could cause a few issues with slick roads so be careful. Highs will struggle to near freezing and lows will end up in the teens Thursday night.

FRIDAY: Expect dry weather again and a high into the middle 20’s. Yes, back in the freezer.

SATURDAY: A quick little system again, so a few snowflakes are back in the forecast. Look for highs around freezing, with lows near 20 both Saturday morning and night.

SUNDAY: Temperatures will be much the same as Saturday (that is, close to freezing — I’m going 33), but with partly cloudy skies. I am not buying lower 40’s as guidance suggests…not yet anyway.

MONDAY: A few rain and snow showers will be around with the next system, with highs in the middle to upper 30’s after lows in the upper 20’s. Again, I’m not buying into warmer guidance until I see what tomorrow’s and Saturday’s snow systems do.

NEXT UPDATE: The next blog post will be later today at some point — as I am off to try to get some sleep soon after the overnight event. Until then, take care!
