Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
Tonight a weak low will begin to push in from the West late bringing a chance of a few snow showers by dawn. Snow showers will be more dominant tomorrow but scattered in nature as this low moves East and joins forces with a low off the East coast. Some light accumulation of a coating or less will be possible tomorrow but temps will be generally above freezing keeping accumulations light and on grassy surfaces. Tomorrow night the low departs allowing colder air to filter in and clear skies return late. By Wednesday high pressure returns but cold air remains for one more day. Rain showers, milder air, and breezy conditions return by late Thursday as we head into a pattern change, one with a more springlike feel.
The new pattern will consist a few smaller cold outbreaks but it appears milder air will dominate with quick moving springlike storm systems.
