It's no surprise that forecasts differ, but some weather outlets are predicting up to a foot of snow on Saturday for the Cincinnati area. Are they right?
Wednesday afternoon, the Weather Channel says there is a 100 percent chance of snow on Saturday for the city.
"Temps nearly steady in the mid-30s ... Snow accumulating 8-12 inches," according to the channel's website.
However, the National Weather Service isn't ready to raise alarms. A meteorologist based at the service's Wilmington, Ohio location said it is just too early to tell.
As of Wednesday, the service is predicting less than half an inch of snow to fall late Friday night into Saturday with the snow turning to rain around 1 p.m. More snow could fall late Saturday into Sunday, the service predicts.
The weather service is also predicting a high temperature of 42 Saturday.
With the forecasts differing as much as 11 and half inches, Cincinnatians will have to wait to see if the predictions get more consistent.
Forecasters from both outlets are predicting a sunny Thursday with highs in the mid-40s. They also agree that during that Friday morning and afternoon will be partly cloudy.
The weather service said predictions for the weekend will become more clear tomorrow.
