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.

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