Forecast Discussion

Temperatures have already risen above freezing mark early this morning as we are under mild southerly breeze and we will continue to warm up into lower 40’s out ahead of another potent cold front. Look for rain showers to develop as result later this afternoon and then switch over to light snow as colder air continues to filter in this evening before ending later tonight. It appears that Athens will pick up little over 1 inch with greater amounts down by Ohio River. The bigger threat in our region would be all the melting snow and wet areas from rain showers to get iced over as we drop into the teens by Thursday morning. This is why flash freeze risk is high tonight so please be extra careful when traveling tonight into tomorrow morning. Much colder air now filters in to finish of the work week as highs will be in the 20’s and lows in single digits with wind chills being below zero at times during night and in teens during day. We do warm up slightly this weekend, but still remaining well below normal.
