Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
Hazardous Outlook: Very warm moist air will move into the region today through tomorrow ahead of a strong arctic front. Initially scattered rain showers will be light tonight through tomorrow then increase through Thursday night when the front moves through. As the front slips Southeast temperatures will begin to drop into the 30s and eventually 20s Friday evening and night. As this happens another low pressure will move up along the front. The exact track and speed of the low will determine how much ice/snow the region will see. Current thinking is that rain heavy at times Friday morning will transition to a mix then to some light snow Friday night with some snow accumulation by Saturday morning. Exact amounts are still up in the air. Stay tuned for further details.
