Overnight: There still may be a scattered light wintry mix, but nowhere near the Wednesday evening activity, Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Dontae Jones said. Roads, sidewalks and cars are icy and snow-covered in some cases in areas near and north of Interstate 70, which saw prolonged periods of a wintry mix containing snow and freezing rain. Ice accumulation is possible in the areas included in the Winter Weather Advisory. Snow/sleet accumulations were projected between 1 and 2 inches in the far northwest (Auglaize, Darke and Mercer counties). Areas south and east of Dayton likely will see more rain as temperatures hold above freezing overnight.
