Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
A weak clipper will move through late tonight bringing some light snow to the region. Most areas will see an inch or less, a few isolated locations North may see two inches. Tomorrow slick travel will be the early story followed by some pm peaks of sun. Clouds increase tomorrow night as a arctic front slips South and another clipper tracks just to our South. Some areas South will see a coating of snow but the main story will be cold air in the single digits by dawn Wednesday. Winds will be gusty at times tomorrow night as this low begins to strengthen of the coast by Wednesday morning. These winds will combine with cold air making for cold wind chills near -12 at times. Wednesday high pressure will build in allowing clear skies to return and keeping cold locked in through Friday.
Another storm system will work its way North over the weekend bringing precipitation North into cold air. How much cold air stay in place will determine how much frozen precipitation this storm will bring. Behind this storm more cold air looks to spill in early next week hanging tough through at least the first half of March.
