Advisories expire following Wednesday snow


Light snowfall tapered down Wednesday night, but worries existed of slick roadways.

"We are at the point that the pavement has cooled enough for slick spots," said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Jamie Simpson.

The Dayton-Springfield area was expected to get 1 to 2 inches of snow, and areas farther north about 3 to 5 inches after temperatures fell from the mid-40s to the mid-20s, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Rich Wirdzek.

As of Wednesday afternoon, Waynesfield spotters reported 3 inches of snow. Totals elsewhere in the area ranged from less than a half-inch in Piqua to nearly 3 inches (2.6) in Celina, according to Storm Center 7.

The sun will return Thursday, with a high near 30, Simpson said.

Showers Friday night look light and spotty, and should be gone by sunrise Saturday, which is expected to have a high of 48 degrees.

Sunday should have a high of 35 degrees.
