There is currently a Winter Weather Advisory in effect for our area from midnight tonight through midnight Wednesday. It looks like we’re headed for a classic wintery mix of snow, sleet, and perhaps some freezing rain. Things could get a little messy…
High pressure will continue to dominate through today bringing us clear skies and a high of 43°F with winds less than 5 mph. Tonight things will begin to change as low pressure moves into the region from the Ohio Valley. We’ll see partly cloudy skies with a chance of snow in the evening, then overcast skies with snow overnight. Lows will be around 28°F with winds less than 5 mph. Chance of snow is 100% with accumulations up to 3″ possible in the valleys and higher totals — from 4″-6″ — in higher elevations. We might see some periods of spotty freezing rain and sleet as well. A fine winter mix…
