Light snow to continue into Tuesday

Light snow could continue all night and only accumulate to a half inch, but the on-and-off nature of the pattern likely will leave a coating to quarter-inch in some locations by Tuesday morning, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson said Monday night.

Icy spots on area roadways could be an issue for the morning commute, but any roadway issues should be resolved by mid-morning because temps are expected to reach the mid 30s in the afternoon.

More scattered snow showers are expected Tuesday and could accumulate to perhaps a half-inch at most, Simpson said.

From here on, only a half-inch or a little more is expected anywhere in the region. More refreeze is possible Tuesday night as area temps will drop into the mid 20s by Wednesday morning.

The last flurries for the area will be Wednesday morning and then the region will see a dry period until rain pops up on Sunday.

Meantime, look for gradual warming and more sun Thursday through Saturday.

As far as offering a summary of the Sunday night-to-Monday morning storm, snow totals throughout the region ranged from 3 inches to 10 inches.

As of 8:23 p.m. Monday, 6.8 inches was reported to have fallen in Quincy, Logan County. That report was submitted by a trained weather spotter, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington.

As of 7:15 p.m., 8.3 inches was reported in St. Marys, 8 in Uniopolis, 7.5 in Wapakoneta and 7 in New Knoxville. Those totals were reported by the emergency management agency manager for Auglaize County, according to the weather service.

As of 10:45 a.m., New Bremen in Auglaize had received 10 inches of snow. Darke County averaged 6 inches. Greene had about 3.5 inches. One trained spotter measured 7 inches in Huber Heights, Montgomery County.

Other areas saw less snow. Lebanon in Warren County, for example, measured 2 inches, while Butler County measured 3.

The 5.8 inches of snowfall recorded at Dayton International Airport through midnight set a new daily snowfall record for Sunday, Simpson said.

Selling off wax presidents

We’ve been talking a lot about history lately, and this piece in the Times caught my eye last week — a story about how a presidential wax museum in Gettysburg, Pa., is shutting down after 60 years and selling off all its figures. I’ve been to Gettysburg often, and I remember a childhood stop at the Hall of Presidents and First Ladies...
Learning aggression?

From Pacific Standard: “Superheroes dominate American pop culture at the moment, which would seem to be a good thing. Superman, Wonder Woman, and most of their peers fight injustice and help those in need. One would think their young fans would learn to emulate their admirable behaviors. Unfortunately, one would be wrong. That’s the conclusion...
