The latest snow storm is gone, and our next storm for tomorrow night will be mainly a rainmaker.  However, parts of Indiana and northern Kentucky could see ice and snow.  Follow along as we time out our next big storm with Futurecast!

The storm is slowing down, so the 1st map below shows Tuesday afternoon as mainly dry, with above freezing temperatures.   As you scroll through the images, keep an eye on the temps and precip type.

The 2nd image shows the storm moving in tomorrow during the evening commute.  Rain is likely with above freezing temps along and south of the Ohio River.  A transition to freezing rain, sleet, and snow north of the Ohio River.

Notice on the 3rd map by later in the evening, the rain is shifting farther north.  This warming trend contnues as the low-pressure storm system approaches with a southerly flow aloft.  Notice by the 4th map late Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning - most areas are dealing with rain.  The rain will be heavy at times, and could cause flooding, especially after Monday's snow. 

The 5th map shows the system moving out early Wednesday morning.   We hope these temps hold true.  If so, our Wednesday morning commute won't be too icy.  If we end up just a bit colder, we'll have to watch out for icy roads. 

The 6th maps shows the dropping temps by Wednesday afternoon.  Any leftover moisture on untreated roads will cause icy spots.

The last map is the ice potential Tuesday evening.  You can see  it's mainly in Indiana. 

Little to no snow accumulation is expected by Wednesday morning.

Main Impacts:  *Heavy rain and flooding Tuesday night

                            *Ice/snow north Tuesday evening - slick roads in Indiana

                            *Icy spots Wednesday with dropping temps
