This morning begins very cold, with temperatures near 10 degrees, but windchill factors in the single digits, said Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini.

Skies will be cloudy with flurries, leading to a snow system that will move into our area in the afternoon and spread across the Miami Valley throughout the evening. Temps today will peak in the low-20s.

Darke, Miami, Preble, Montgomery, Greene, Butler, Warren, Clinton, Hamilton and Wayne and Randolph, Ind. counties are under a Winter Weather Advisory from 4 p.m. Saturday until 4 a.m. Sunday.

Evening snow continues to fall into the overnight. By Sunday morning there could be 1 to 3 inches of accumulation in areas, even more if certain spots are caught in a snow burst, Zontini said.

The snow will taper down by Sunday morning, but road conditions overnight will deteriorate and visibility could be limited for driver during the storm.

Sunday morning, slick spots are expected on area roadways. Some lingering snow flurries are possible, but will change to a mix of partly cloudy skies throughout the day. Conditions will be breezy, but temps will max out in the low-20s.

Monday will begin with sunshine before a front pushes through, bringing another chance of snow showers by the evening. Highs will be in the mid to upper-20s.

Snow throughout the Miami Valley on Friday afternoon and evening pushed the region past the average snowfall total for winter. Before Friday, the official snowfall total for Dayton this season was 23.6 inches, 4 tenths of an inch below the average.
