Here Comes Winter, Northern Kentucky. Snowy Monday Commute Expected.
As Northern Kentuckians return to a normal schedule on Monday, after a couple weeks of holiday leisure, the first snow of the season will arrive, too.
The National Weather Service in Wilmington, Ohio has issued a hazardous weather outlook for Northern Kentucky as the first measurable snow of the season appears to be poised to arrive during the morning commute on Monday. Snow showers will form down wind of Lake Michigan, and are expected to bring a dusting to a half inch of snow to the entire region.
An inch of snow is possible for a line running from Richmond, Indiana to Maysville, the NWS stated.
Snow is expected to begin late Monday with the heaviest snowfall peaking around daybreak.
The NWS urges drivers to be prepared for problems associated with hazardous weather during rush hour traffic.
Monday is the only day this week with snow in the forecast, though low temperatures will be in the 20s this week. Tuesday should see sunny skies and a high of 32. Sunshine lingers through Wednesday when we can expect a high of 42. We could see rain Thursday through Sunday with high temperatures in the upper 30s and lower 40s.
