Current Conditions

Temp: 68.8°F

Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, March 4, 2015 at 11:20AM

Caution Ahead

First things first, Wednesday is breezy but pleasant otherwise. A stray light shower cannot be ruled out this afternoon. But the second thing is impressive... A sharp cold front arrives tonight. It will spread rain showers across the region tonight into early Thursday. Temperatures begin a nosedive tonight that does not end until Thursday night. The complication in the process is that temperatures aloft will fall more slowly than at the surface. So the transition will be from rain to freezing rain/sleet ending as snow or snow showers. The ice will limit accumulation totals but it's a significant headache nonetheless. Prepare today for a rather nasty Thursday.

Forecast Discussion

We said it would be a roller coaster ride this week... Today the chain is pulling us up. Be ready for the free fall tomorrow.

A front will move across the Appalachians this evening. Ahead of the front today, a strong southwesterly flow will pump temperatures. Skies will be mostly cloudy and a stray shower cannot be ruled out during the daytime. Steadier rain arrives tonight and temperatures begin a long and sharp fall.

Thursday morning temperatures will fall below freezing changing rain to freezing rain and sleet. The precipitation type will be icy (rather than snowy) because temperatures aloft will fall more slowly than at the surface. In the afternoon, precipitation will transition to snow or snow showers before ending early in the evening. Total ice/snow accumulations in the 1"-3" range are expected. Expect a mess by afternoon.

Clouds decrease Thursday night with very cold temperatures. Friday looks cold for March with mostly sunny skies as high pressure moves across the Ohio Valley.

If you are looking for nicer weather, I have good news on that topic. High pressure "takes up shop" in the Eastern U. S. giving us an extended dry period with gradually milder weather, Saturday through Tuesday.
