Near Term:  Precipitation covers most of the state starting late this evening and continuing through midday Thursday.  Temperatures during this timeframe reach a maximum in the upper 50's at midnight going into Thursday morning.  Temps will cool throughout Thursday, but remain above freezing all day.  The associated cold front will have passed through the entire state by Thursday evening, bringing dry air and cold temperatures in the low 30's / upper 20's which will persist until Saturday morning.  Along the Ohio River valley, weak precipitation is expected to linger as the front stalls out.  With cold temperatures, this could bring chances of freezing rain to the southern counties throughout Friday.

Long Term:  Saturday and Sunday - Moisture lingering over the Ohio River valley will push back north to bring precipitation chances across the entire state.  Chance of freezing rain / sleet will cover the northern half of the state.  Rain is expected in the southern half as temperatures warm slightly.  Typical accumulation over the weekend will be light, less than 1/4".
