Springfield police open death investigation after woman’s body found

Winter Storm Warning issued


A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for all area Counties except Clinton County, which is under a Winter Storm Watch on Sunday.

A Wind Chill Watch has been issued for all area Counties late Sunday into Tuesday.

Saturday overnight, a cold front will bring scattered light snow to locations mainly north and west by daybreak. Temperatures in the upper-20s to low-30s.

Sunday, light scattered snow to start, mainly north and west. Precipitation will spread south and east as the front slides into the area. Snow will become steadier and heavier across our northwestern counties during the afternoon and evening. Locations Oxford - Dayton -Springfield and southeast will see rain mixing with snow Sunday afternoon, with the possibility of all rain, before changing to all snow in the evening.

Temperatures will vary with location. Lower-30s northwest to mid-30s southeast. Blowing and drifting snow will be an issue Sunday night as wind increase behind the front. An arctic blast of cold air drops temperatures significantly by Monday morning with temps near zero by or before sunrise Monday. Wind chill values close to -20 by morning.

This means snow-covered or wet roadways will freeze and cause hazardous road conditions for the Monday morning commute.

Monday, icy roads expected with mostly cloudy, breezy and frigid conditions throughout the day.

A few scattered light snow showers are still possible with temperatures below zero and falling through Monday. Wind chill values could reach -30 in the afternoon, and close to -40 overnight. Temperatures this cold will not allow salt to melt anything left on the roads. Also, frostbite could occur in less than 10 minutes.

Tuesday, partly cloudy and frigid. A passing flurry is possible. Starting the day between -15 and -20 degrees. Highs near zero. Wind chill values near -40 in the morning and -20 in the afternoon.

Wednesday, more clouds arrive on Wednesday our next storm approaches. Scattered snow possible by Wednesday evening into early Thursday. Temperatures are expected to rise a bit on Thursday allowing rain to mix in with snow before ending.
