A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect through noon Wednesday for the entire region. Total snow accumulations of 2 to 4 inches are expected. Slippery road conditions are likely, which could affect the morning commute.
- Snow arrives after midnight
- Snow/wintry mix Wednesday morning
- Warm-up into the weekend
Overnight: Snow arrives after midnight and quickly will accumulate on roadways, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs said. Temperatures will rise through the night and a transition to sleet and freezing rain from the south will develop before dawn south of Interstate 70.
Wednesday: Accumulating snow continues into the early morning, especially across the northern Miami Valley before sunrise. As warm air pushes in from the south, snow will slowly transition to a wintry mix from south to north during the morning hours. The morning commute will be very messy. Motorists should drive with caution.
Snow totals will range from 2 to 4 inches with a light glaze of ice possible in the far southern and then far northern Miami Valley. Most will transition to all rain by late morning or lunch and some scattered rain showers will continue into the afternoon. Temperatures will climb to the mid-40s, which will then melt or begin the melting of snow accumulated in the morning. Showers end at night as a few flurries.
Thursday: Temperatures start around freezing. It should be just warm enough to limit widespread refreeze, but it will be something to watch early. Morning clouds will break for sunshine with highs in the middle 40s.
Friday: Dry time early. Some sunshine throughout the day. Highs in the mid-40s. Clouds thicken into the evening. Rain returns at night.
Saturday: Scattered rain showers and breezy conditions become widespread. Highs in the upper 50s. Very mild.
Sunday: Few lingering showers possible with highs in the middle 50s. Also, a very windy day.
