Winter weather making its return

Posted: Updated:

The Tri-State is once again under a Winter Weather Advisory.

The first round of precipitation is moving into the area right now.  According to meteorologist, Chad Sewich, as temperatures drop later this evening and overnight, another round of moisture in the form of snow, sleet and rain will move through. 

Minor accumulations of 1-3" are still likely overnight north of the Ohio River, with mainly rain over western Kentucky.  Freezing rain mixed is still possible, but significant icing issues are not likely.

The system will move out by early Saturday afternoon, although we may see some wrap around light precipitation through the afternoon.  Cold, but dry on Sunday.

The Indiana Department of Transportation has crews pre-treating highways, bridges and overpasses north of I-64 and will begin plowing and treating interstates, U.S. highways and state routes as needed once the snow begins.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Snow and Ice Team is monitoring the weather and has crews on alert to respond should the winter precipitation extend southward into Kentucky.  The KYTC says the main threat is to bridges and overpasses along the Ohio River border counties.
