"At this time, the transition - both timing and location - from rain to snow/freezing rain/sleet is hard to forecast, but early models indicate that some areas in OH could see up to 12 inches of snow - while other areas across the state could see up to 0.25 inches of ice accumulation", Bailey said. The southern counties could see about half an inch of snow. As the low spreads moisture into the cold air across the OH rain will change to a rain, sleet and snow mix.

KYTC said pre-treating highways with brine will be ineffective due to expected rainfall prior to the wintry mix.

The latest forecast calls for up to an inch of snow in northeast Arkansas with lesser amounts to the south and west.

A strong cold front had moved into the Topeka area early Wednesday, dropping temperatures 22 degrees in three hours - from 45 degrees at 4:53 a.m.to 23 degrees at 7:53 a.m.

Kyle Weisser (WISER) with the National Weather Service says the track of the storm is moving north.

Montana's next winter storm is just hours away and it's expected to drop significant snow in some areas.

Snow and sleet accumulations are expected to be between four and eight inches, more in the snowbelt.

If snow manages to develop in the metro area, it will likely be after 6 or 7 p.m. and any accumulation will be very, very minor. From midnight on, temperatures will fall all throughout your Friday.

Monday: Snow showers with a high near 24 degrees and a low of about 14 degrees.

Winter weather continues to move into parts of Arkansas beginning Thursday night and going into Friday morning.

Saturday night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 8.

KYTC encourages motorists to closely watch weather forecasts as the storm arrives.

The weather service cites a 30 percent chance of snow on Tuesday. Phase 2 will begin Thursday night (Jan. 11) through Saturday, Jan. 13.
