Thunderbirds will not perform Sunday at Vectren Dayton Air Show

More snow expected today

A second punch of winter weather is poised to pummel the Miami Valley today, although it probably won’t pack the same wallop as Friday’s storm.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Champaign, Clark, Preble, Montgomery, Greene, Butler, Warren and Clinton counties starting at 6 a.m. today and extending through 4 a.m. Monday.

The forecast calls for cloudy skies to start the day today, with light snow showers arriving later in the morning. Temperatures gradually warm, changing the snow to sleet and freezing rain in the afternoon, then to all rain during at least part of the evening, with evening highs in the lower 30s.

Travel to and from the Cincinnati/Indianapolis game at Paul Brown Stadium may be a bit slippery. The roadways will be near the freezing mark, but Storm Center 7 Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs said she expects major highways to be OK through late Sunday afternoon and early evening. Side streets and unplowed roads will be more hazardous.

Late tonight and into the early morning hours of Monday, however, the rain will turn back to sleet/freezing rain before tapering off toward Monday morning, Vrydaghs said. Temperatures falling into the upper-20s by sunrise.

Monday may bring a few light snow showers, “but I don’t expect any additional accumulation,” Vrydaghs said. Otherwise, it will be mostly cloudy and cold, with highs in the lower-30s.

Based on official reports and social media estimates, most Dayton-area residents were forced to deal with four to six inches of snowfall from Friday’s storm, with the heaviest band stretching through Preble, Montgomery, Clark and northern Greene counties, and lesser amounts reported in the northern Miami Valley, according to Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Jamie Simpson.

The rest of this week is shaping up to be a cold one. “I don’t expect much melting to take place,” Vrydaghs said.

Tuesday’s forecast calls for highs in the 20s, with mostly cloudy skies and a slight chance of a mixed snow/rain shower.

Morning lows on Wednesday and Thursday may dip into the single digits, with sun and a few clouds and highs in the 20s.
