Some slick spots possible for the morning commute


The Miami Valley will be cold, with possible slick spots on the roadways for morning commuters.

Despite the combination of a cold front and rain on Sunday, today should be dry with clouds and a little sun instead of the potential poor driving conditions intially expected.

“It doesn’t look as bad as first thought, ” said WHIO meteorologist Jamie Simpson. “We’ll start in the upper teens and rise to the mid to upper 20s.”

Although the temperatures will be low, no snowshowers are expected until the end of the week.

Those with New Year’s Eve plans should be delighted: party-goers will be able to don their fur coats and stilettos, and party hosts won’t have to worry about shoveling driveways and walkways for their guests.

“New Year’s Eve is going to be dry but cold,” Simpson said. “Temperatures on Tuesday will fall through the 20s and will be in the low 20s at midnight.”

Wednesday’s snow showers are expected to be confined to the northern Miami Valley. Light snow looks likely on Thursday with light accumulations possible, forecasts show.
