Special Statement

...A taste of winter can be expected tonight...

Colder temperatures will filter into the region in the wake of a strong cold front which will sweep east through the Ohio Valley today. By this evening temperatures will fall into the 30s across much of the area. Strong north winds of 15 to 20 mph with gusts up to 35 mph will result in wind chill values dropping into the 20s and lower 30s this evening.

In addition to the cold and windy conditions...rain showers will mix with snow during the evening and then change to snow overnight.

Minor snow accumulation of less than an inch will be possible tonight... mainly on grassy areas over portions of eastern Indiana...western Ohio and northern Kentucky.

If you have outdoor activities planned tonight...be prepared for cold temperatures...gusty winds and rain showers changing to snow showers.
