Snow Threat: Tracking Wintry Weather Forecast with Southern Shift

CINCINNATI, OHIO – Despite initial excitement for potential wintry weather, the latest forecast suggests that the Greater Cincinnati area may not see significant snowfall. The WLWT News 5 Chief Meteorologist, Kevin Robinson, explains the updated track of the low pressure system, which indicates that most of the snow will stay further south.

According to Robinson, while there is still a possibility of rain turning into snow overnight, the system is expected to move out of the region by early morning. An advisory remains in effect for extreme southeastern communities of Greater Cincinnati, with a chance of 1″ or less accumulation in certain areas.

Although the southern track of the system may bring a snow threat to areas southeast of I-71, such as Southern Brown and Adams counties in OH and Bracken, Mason, and Robertson Counties in NKY, temperatures are expected to drop to around freezing overnight. However, with the wind, many roads should dry out, although there may be slick spots for the morning rush.

Overall, the forecast indicates that the impact of the winter system may not be as significant as initially anticipated. Despite the slight chance of snow in specific areas, the majority of Greater Cincinnati may not experience any significant snowfall. Residents are encouraged to stay updated with the latest impacts and be cautious of potential road hazards.
