A storm bringing snow to Texas and Oklahoma will spread a swath of wet snow during the middle of the week along the Ohio River.
The storm is forecast to bring snow to portions of Oklahoma, northwestern Texas and southern Kansas Tuesday spreading to northern Arkansas and southern Missouri Tuesday evening according to Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski.
The same storm will continue to move along an east to northeast path through the middle of the week.
Since the Ohio Valley region was experiencing mild conditions Tuesday, some of the snow that falls Tuesday night into Wednesday will melt as it falls.
In this area from Kentucky to the southern parts of Illinois, Indiana and Ohio, as well as western West Virginia, the Virginia Panhandle and northeastern Tennessee, a mixture of rain and snow, or very wet snow, will fall. This includes the cities of Cairo, Ill.; Evansville, Ind.; Louisville, London and Paducah, Ky.; Cincinnati, Ohio; Huntington, Charleston and Morgantown, W.Va.; and Bristol, Tenn.
A few locations within the Ohio Valley can pick up a couple of slushy inches.
Farther east, the storm system will push through part of the central Appalachians of West Virginia, Virginia and Maryland Wednesday. While wet snow is the favored form of precipitation in the mountains with up to 6 inches possible, it could turn cold enough to allow a mix of snow and rain even in the valleys.
A pattern favoring multiple storms from the Southwest could bring additional opportunities for snow from the southern Plains to parts of the Midwest through the end of the month.
