Here’s what you should know about the storm on Jan. 12

CINCINNATI (WKRC) - A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for most of the Tri-State area through Saturday morning. A Winter Storm Warning continues for Clinton and Highland County. No changes to the forecast today.

Rain will change to a wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet, and snow between 12-2pm around Cincinnati. Pavement temperatures will be high enough that the roads will be just wet.

As a wintry mix changes to snow between 3-6pm, slick spots will develop.

The afternoon drive on Friday will be a big problem as the roads become completely snow covered Friday night.

Snow will continue Friday evening and begin to taper off early Saturday morning before sunrise. Roads will be messy Saturday morning with improvement as the day goes on as road crews take care of business.

Total accumulations of ice (freezing rain) will be between a light glaze and 1/10 of an inch.

Total accumulations of snow and sleet (ice pellets) will range between 2 to 4" with some isolated amounts to 5" possible.

No matter exactly how much ice, sleet or snow we see, the overall impacts will be the same. There will be messy travel from mid-afternoon Friday through Saturday morning.

This continues to be an evolving and dynamic storm system. Local 12 will provide updated forecasts HERE.
