This weekend's snowstorm is shaping up to be Cincinnati's biggest in several years, chief meteorologist Kevin Robinson said.

A winter storm watch has already been issued for the majority of the Cincinnati area. That watch goes into effect at 4 a.m. Saturday, and will linger through 11 a.m. Sunday.


In total, most of the Cincinnati area will received 4-6 inches of snow from Saturday into Sunday morning, Robinson said.

Isolated pockets will see even more accumulation, if everything comes together.

"This primarily looks like a snow event for the Cincinnati metro area, with widespread amounts around 4 inches with a high of maybe 6 – we still can't rule out a few spots with even higher totals," Robinson said.

The snow will start before 6 a.m. Saturday. Roads will likely be snow covered by mid-morning. The snow should be heaviest Saturday afternoon, and then another round overnight Saturday into early Sunday.

The snowfall should end Sunday afternoon.

It's shaping up to be one of the largest winter storms in recent years, Robinson said. The last storm to bring this type of accumulation was in February 2015, when many of Cincinnati's communities saw between 6-8 inches of snow.
