Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
Roads remain very icy and treacherous and probably will remain that way through the majority of the day as colder air filters in and snow showers return to the region with an upper level disturbance that will rotate through later today. Some of these snow showers especailly North will have the possibiltiy of producing quick reduced visibiliteis and some locations may see up to an additional inch in some spots. With this disturbance winds may gust to 25 mph out of the NW causing some blowing and drifting snow at times. As said before much colder air will filter in with temperatures dropping into the upper single digits tonight and only in the teens tomorrow. Tomorrow night high pressure will settle in and bringing clearing skies, with fresh snow pack this will allow for temperatures to drop to near 0 to -5 in the city some outlying locations may see colder.
The weekend will consist of more cold air locked in with a trough digging in from the NW. This could develop a storm on the East coast giving our region some light snow. Snow on the order of 1 to 3 inches could be possible. There are still many model runs for this system so there could be plenty of changes. Stay tuned. More cold air will dominate behind this system as well through mid week next week.
