Snowfall to taper down overnight


Very little additional snow accumulation is expected tonight as the heaviest band of snow is exiting eastern Clark, Greene and Clinton counties, according to Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson.

Most of the area got about 5 inches of snow on Friday.

All winter storm warnings for the area were cancelled at about 9:30 p.m.

Rain that fell across the area last night froze and created a sheet of ice under the snow that fell this morning.

Several counties have issued snow or travel emergencies and a list of those can be found here.

"After sunset, anything untreated will freeze over" Meteorologist Rich Wirdzek said. "Road conditions will continue to be a problem even well after the snow tapers down in the evening."

Side and back roads will be most treacherous until sunrise tomorrow when some improvement will begin to take place.

Highs Saturday will only be in the mid 20s, but skies will be mostly sunny.

Another wintry mix may start by noon on Sunday changing to rain on Sunday evening then ending as snow showers early Monday. Accumulation will be light but slick roads are possible Sunday afternoon and evening.

Snow totals as of 7:30 p.m.:

  • Montgomery - 5"
  • Clark - 5"
  • Greene - 5" northwest to 3" southeast
  • Clinton - 3"
  • Warren - 3" south to 5" north
  • Butler - 4"
  • Preble - 6"
  • Darke - 2" north to 4" south
  • Miami - 4"
  • Champaign - 4"
  • Shelby - 2"
  • Logan - 2"
  • Auglaize 1" west to 2" east
  • Mercer - 1"
