Winter’s version of ‘March Madness’ approaches region


A winter storm warning will go into effect for most of southwest Ohio this morning when another blast of winter is expected to hit the region.

The warnings, issued by the National Weather Service on Saturday afternoon, will be in effect from 8 a.m. Sunday to 2 p.m. Monday. All counties but Clinton and Warren are affected. Those areas will be under a winter storm watch during that timeframe.

Snow will arrive to the south and west on this morning. Many areas will wait until the afternoon and evening before snow starts to fall.

Areas south of I-70 will likely see a bit of snow mixing with rain through midday as temperatures rise a bit above freezing. After sunset, everyone will begin to change over to snow as temperatures drop.

“Most roads will be fine up to this point” said Storm Center 7 meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs. “The heaviest of snow is expected Sunday night into early Monday morning with possible accumulation of 4 to 8 inches by sunrise.”

Slippery roads will be a major concern for the morning commute, according to Vrydaghs. Breezy conditions and above freezing temperatures in the afternoon will improve roads a bit.

Snow showers are expected through the day Monday, leaving up to an additional 1 or 2 inches in spots. Roads will likely refreeze overnight Monday causing slick roads Tuesday morning.

Light snow showers linger on Tuesday and a dusting is possible. Vrydaghs said total accumulations between Sunday and Monday are as follows:

3 to 6 inches Southeast of Dayton

5 to 8 inches for Dayton and North

Possible 7 to 10 inches in areas to the far north (Mercer, Auglaize, Shelby and Logan counties)

Temperatures all three days will start in the 20s with highs in the 30s, Vrydaghs said. The area could see winds between 10-20 mph both Sunday and Monday producing wind chills in the teens to start and 20s in the afternoon.
