Rain on tap for today.

Welcome to Kingston Snows!!

Kingston City Schools are on a Two Hour Delay.

School Forecast For:
Wednesday January 18, 2012
Two-Hour Delay Cancellation Early Dismissal

Kingston picked up 1.25 inches overnight. Ice pellets and sleet compacted the fluffiness of the snow to a final depth of 0.75 inches.

After an extended lull in the precipitation, rain will move back into the picture later this morning into this afternoon. The radar is showing rather impressive rain rates back over Ohio and Indiana, and we could be looking at periods of heavy rain later on this afternoon.

The cold front associated with this storm will move through tonight. Highs today will approach 40 degrees, and will actually peak tonight at 43 degrees before the front moves through around 10PM. Temperatures will fall overnight and through tomorrow as colder air filters in. Temperatures will be around 40 by 12AM tonight, 35 by 6AM tomorrow, 34 around noon and steadily fall to a low of 11 around 6am Thursday. We should be looking at considerable snowmelt with the 24 hours of above freezing temperatures, and the moderate to potentially heavy rainfall.

Wednesday and Thursday will be clear for the most part. We could be looking at some snow showers Thursday night into early Friday morning. Any accumulations should be under half an inch at this point. Neither Thursday nor Friday will break the freezing mark. Lows will be in the upper teens.

There is a chance of snow showers on Saturday.
We could be back in the 40's by Sunday and Monday.

I will have an update later this week to address Thursday night's potential snow showers.

Next Update:
Thursday Morning.
