Parts of Tri-State under winter weather advisory

Posted: Updated:

More winter weather is expected to head into the area overnight. 

14 News Meteorologist Jeff Lyons says rain will change to snow overnight with 1-2" accumulations across the northern half of the Tri-State.

He says a winter weather advisory is in effect until noon Thursday for areas along and north of the Ohio River. Temperatures will fall into the lower 20's during the day. 

Jeff says the area will have another chance for snow by Sunday, and then bitter cold air moves in to start the week. That means single digit highs and sub-zero lows will be possible by Tuesday.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says crews will be monitoring the weather and are ready to treat the roads.

The KYTC says trucks will be loaded and ready to roll in case bridges and overpasses develop slick spots. We're told crews are planning to report in force at 5:00 a.m. around the main time snowfall is expected to start.

Motorists are asked to monitor the forecast for regular updates through the night and drive safe and cautious in their morning commute.
