TODAY: The Winter Weather Advisory continues for all until 8 p.m. Wednesday. A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for Butler and Warren Counties until 8 p.m. Wednesday as well

Snow is falling steady enough that roads are covered and will continue to take on new snow through the night. “Snow stays pretty widespread with some pockets of intensity through the morning drive”, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini. 

Moisture pulls away with this system and some showers should begin to fizzle out towards lunch. 

Winds will be gusty especially north of I-70 early this morning. 20 to 30 mph gusts are possible late this afternoon everywhere once snow stops, which can keep the threat for blowing and drifting.
