The National Weather Service in Moon issued a winter weather advisory in effect from 10 a.m. Saturday to 7 p.m. Sunday.

Snow is expected to begin mid-morning and accumulate from 4 to 6 inches in the region, with as much as 6 to 10 inches in higher elevations.

The most intensive snowfall will occur Saturday afternoon into midday Sunday, as two “clipper-type” storms move through, the service said in its alert. It warned of limited visibility and snow-covered roads.

A flood advisory issued by the service remains in effect for the Ohio River at The Point, Downtown, until Saturday evening.

Temperatures are predicted to be in the mid- to upper-20s over the weekend.
