Snowmaggedon?

Probably not.

But the National Weather Service in Wilmington, which serves the Scioto County area, has issued a winter weather advisory which was put in effect 10 p.m. Wednesday to noon today.

The weather service said a mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain is expected. Total snow accumulations of up to one inch are possible. Ice accumulations of up to a tenth of an inch, what was described as a “light glaze of ice,” also is possible, if not expected.

The weather service warned to plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous conditions could impact Thursday morning’s commute, the weather service added. In short, the weather service said, expect slippery roads and limited visibility. Use caution while driving, the service suggested.

The winter weather advisory was put in place in portions of northeast and northern Kentucky, south central, southwest and west central Ohio, as well as eastern portions of Indiana.

The weather service forecast gave a 50 to 100 percent chance of wintry weather through part of today, changing to a 100 percent chance of rain throughout the day with a high temperature of 39o F.
