Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
Winds chills we be as low as -30 tonight. Use caution when outdoors.
A moderation in temperatures will be felt this week as the jet stream slowly moves back to a more zonal flow. This means equal amounts of cold versus milder weather will be felt through early February. There will be less extreme cold events but it is not out the question to see temperatures still near zero with some cold outbreaks as this pattern is going to take time to break down. In the midst of this changing pattern means big storm systems, some will bring significant snows while others will bring bouts of milder weather and possible flooding/severe storms especially towards the later half of February and into March.
