Temperatures stay in teh upper 20s, lower 30s in the northern Miami Valley, so showers north of Dayton will be snow or freezing rain. Some afternoon showers in Dayton likely will just be rain. A wintry mix is expected for all at night. Roads may be slick in spots at times on Saturday, early Sunday.

Sunday: Another wave of moisture will push in. A better chance for steadier precipitation will come with this round. Mixed precipitation with freezing rain south and snow/sleet north during the day. May see a brief switch to snow/sleet everywhere before ending Sunday evening. Around 0.5 inch or less of snow/sleet possible north of U.S. 36; Less than 0.10 inch ice accumulation south of U.S. 36. This is when we could see the greatest impacts on the roads. If they appear wet, they’re potentially icy.
