News Briefs

Snow to make its first appearance

A winter weather advisory is in effect for Greater Cincinnati today because forecasters are expecting the first significant snowfall of the year.

If they're right, you should wake up to 2 inches of the white stuff this morning. Another inch is expected to fall later today, along with freezing rain and sleet.

"It will be the biggest snowfall so far," said Myron Padgett, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Wilmington. . "But it could be worse. We're just getting the northern edge of the storm. The mid-Atlantic states will get a lot more snow. Still, it should snow most of the day (today)."

Highs will be in the mid-30s, with lows dipping into the mid-20s.
