Snow is coming to Butler County: What to expect in today’s forecast

Get ready for a sneak preview of winter.

There is a 100 percent chance of precipitation this afternoon and a forecast of rain turning to snow later today, according to the National Weather Service’s Wilmington office.

Rain is expected to fall somewhere near 4 p.m. throughout the Greater Cincinnati area. As winds increase from 5 to 10 mph to gusts up to 25 mph and temperatures plummet, the rain will turn to snow from northwest to southeast with snow tapering off overnight.

Colder air moving into the region this evening may cause some roads to become icy, with slick spots possibly persisting even after snow diminishes overnight. Total snow accumulation for the Butler County area is expected to be between 1 and 3 inches.

Tuesday’s temperatures are expected to reach only the upper 20s, a lower-than-average mark for this time of year, with winds between 10 and 15 mph and a 20 percent chance of snow.
