Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
A clipper will pass South of the region tonight, with a few locations seeing a light coating of snow late. The main story however will be arcitic air and frigid wind chills by dawn lasting through Friday morning as this system pulls in much colder air on breezy Northwest winds. Friday high pressure will move off to the East allowing for a bit of a moderating trend. Friday night a warm front will lift through bringing a good shot of some snow Friday night. Saturday will be milder ahead of an approaching storm system over the weekend. This system appears to bring rain and then some snow by late Monday night. If this system moves South any it could have huge implications on precipitation type.
Colder air dominates next week lasting through at least the first week of March.
