In the Cincinnati area it's not uncommon for it to be only raining in Northern Kentucky while it's snowing hard and schools are closing in Franklin and Union Counties in Indiana. The weather varies enough that an area wide forecast will often be wrong someplace.

I used to work 3rd shift at Monsanto's Port Plastics Plant in Addyston, Oh, right on the Ohio River. There would be mornings that I left work and it was lightly raining. After I crossed into Indiana and started gaining altitude the rain would turn to snow, and when I got to the top of the hill the roads would be covered. That was only a 15 minute drive. How do you put that in a weather forecast?

When I lived up by Dayton, I worked for a contractor for a short time, he would call off due to snow, and tell me I was full of it because the sun was out where I was, and clear to the north, where we were (supposed to be) working.

I-70 runs along a weather line there. it's clear on one side, rain/snow/storming on the other.

Can't remember the older guy on channel 2 who got off telling people about the "lake effect" snow. Not a 1/4 inch of powder on the ground and everyone is driving like there's 10 inches of ice.
