A complex storm system will move in to the Dayton area late Friday night, bringing with it a weather mix that will impact most of the Miami Valley this weekend, according to StormCenter 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini.
Here are a few things to keep in mind to stay prepared:
- Heavy rain late Friday night, Saturday afternoon--ponding on the roads and reduced visibility will make driving challenging, and raise your risk of hydroplaning.
- Winds will be gusting Saturday afternoon and evening. Isolated power outages are possible. Holiday decorations and lawn furniture could be blown around or damaged.
- Cold air will move in quickly, a 20-degree drop is expected by Sunday morning. Below freezing temperatures, light snow flurries are possible. Accumulation should not be an issue, but icy spots on roads Sunday morning are possible.
