The timing of the snow squalls is looking to be for the first part of Tuesday.  The moisture will be coming from Lake Michigan and  when the snow line becomes partnered with the windy conditions expected in the Miami Valley, poor visibility can accompany it.

FORECAST: Wintry mix late tonight, followed by lake-effect snow Tuesday

Communities that get caught in the lake-enhanced snow squalls could see two or more inches of snow, especially in areas northeast of Dayton.

The Storm Center 7 team is forecasting the squalls will be very isolated across the area.
