Oh Snow! Here We Go Again, Northern Kentucky

Well, if you wanted more snow you've got it.

But first -- freezing rain.

A rough forecast is in store for Northern Kentucky over the next few days.

We start with a freezing rain advisory through 10 a.m. Tuesday before adding a flash flood watch this evening and a winter storm watch on Wednesday.

Freezing rain is expected primarily in the morning hours before turning into plain old moderate to heavy rain by Tuesday evening. One to two inches of rain is likely across the region before becoming snow on Wednesday. 

With plenty of snow on the ground and frozen soils, runoff from the rainfall could be significant and lead to widespread flooding of poorly drained areas, low lying areas, small creeks and streams, and some rivers, the National Weather Service said.

The winter storm watch goes into effect on Wednesday afternoon through Thursday. Heavy snow accumulation is expected with some reports as low as one to three inches and others as high as six to nine inches possible.

Though Tuesday will be wet and treacherous, we will see a high temperature of around 48 degrees before becoming much colder on Wednesday and Thursday. The high temperature on Wednesday is expected to reach 27 and on Thursday we'll only see 19 as a high with a low of minus-2.

Sunshine returns on Friday with a high of 31 and the sun sticks around through Saturday and Sunday when we will see highs in the low 40s.
