It sounds cliche, but the weather here in the Tri-State is never boring. There have been some weeks we have gone through all four seasons. It's also very tricky to predict too far in advance.

The weather models change, well literally with the weather. A simple switch in the wind direction can change the amount of snow we get. On Monday, Your Weather Authority WEHT Meteorologist Ron Rhodes said that southern Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois would be affected by winter weather this week. The big question is how much snow will we get?
