Here's the Storm Blog...I will follow the winter weather hitting my area in this blog. UPDATES THROUGHOUT THE DAY...
5:15am: Snow indicated on radar. But a lot of it may not reach the ground until after sunrise. Still, I am thinking 2-4 inches coming today. Any ice accumulations should be less than a quarter inch.
12:10pm: Snow now falling in Florence and has been for a little bit. .5" accumulations here so far...Winter Storm Warning issued to my southeast. Schools all over the place are closing early. CLICK HERE FOR A LIST OF SCHOOL CLOSINGS/EARLY DISMISSALS.
2:15pm: Snow continues east of town primarily. It will all end by 4:00pm. Jen from unglazed has posted video from Campbell County, KY...click here to see it. ROADS WILL BE WET, MAYBE SLICK IN SOME AREAS...USE CAUTION!
4:45pm: I checked with Derek Beasley, Chief Meteorologist at WLWT-TV 5. He tells me we'll be okay precip wise, but a couple slick spots can't be ruled out. Beasley reports that an inch and a half fell downtown with some ice on top, and that's about the same thing I can report here in Florence.
Further NE, the snow and ice will be moving through PA and NE Ohio. Expect the same thing there, up to 5 inches of snow in some areas, along with at most 1/2 inch of ice.
5:25am WEDNESDAY, 12/17: Schools are again closing or delaying in many locales East of Interstate 75 in Ohio and Kentucky today. Click the first link above for school delays. Again, worth repeating: Bridges, overpasses, and any road in an extremely rural area which hasn't had treatments WILL HAVE ICE on it! Be careful!
