Jennifer Edwards Baker reports:
Watch for remaining slick spots and even spots of black ice on the roads as you head into work Thursday morning.
Flurries and light rain are drizzling around downtown Cincinnati. It’s 30 degrees with a wind chill of 27 at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.
Winds are low at 5 mph, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington.
Later, the high temperature will climb to 36 under partly cloudy skies, about 15 degrees below normal for this time of year, said meteorologist John Franks.
There’s a slight chance for snow flurries this afternoon and early evening. It will be clear tonight but cold with a low of 21.
A major warm-up will begin Friday as the skies clear, finally allowing the sun to warm our region.
“This time of year the sun is really packing some power in it, and we are starting to climb out of winter into the spring,” Franks said. “With the clear skies, we will eat away the snow pack.”
Daytime highs will hover in the low 40s on Friday before soaring into the upper 50s on Saturday and Sunday – which is what the normal should be, Franks said.
