Up & Down Weather Ahead: Sunny and Warm, then Snow

The high temperature on Tuesday afternoon will reach the upper 60s, flirting with 70.

By the time you wake up on Wednesday, it will still be relatively warm outside but by Wednesday night, the temperature will be back in the teens.

Oh, and there will be snow involved.

A low pressure system is expected to move through the Ohio Valley tonight with rain starting later Tuesday and turning into snow by Wednesday morning.

According to the National Weather Service, snow accumulations are generally expected to be an inch or less.

Meanwhile, winds may also be burdensome. The forecast suggests that in addition to snow showers on Wednesday, winds may gust as high as 40 miles per hour, reducing visibilities to under a half mile.

It's an up and down week for weather.
