We Hit 50 Today, But Snow's Comin'... and Maybe Lots

Well, it sure felt nice for part of today as the temperature hit somewhere around fifty degrees.

That little taste of spring, however, will be a distant memory over the weekend and into Monday.

The National Weather Service has produced a hazardous weather outlook for Northern Kentucky as a storm sets to move in. 

A low pressure system is expected to bring accumulating snow to the region on Saturday night through Sunday night, though the NWS said that there is still some uncertainty in the exact track and subsequent snowfall amounts.

The Weather Channel is predicting between three and five inches of snow on the ground.
