A low pressure system will dive southeast across the basin today into early
Saturday. Widespread precipitation is expected, but amounts should be
fairly light. Behind the front, an unseasonably cold airmass will pour into
the Ohio Valley, likely changing rain showers over to snow showers overnight
tonight. Precipitation will eventually taper off Saturday as high pressure
begins to move in for Sunday/Monday. The next system is expected to bring
more rain to the basin Tuesday/Wednesday.
