Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
Chillier air will be the story today as winds remain Westerly behind a dying cold front the came through the region last night. Southerly flow returns tomorrow as high pressure takes hold bringing temps close to 60 in many locations under sunny skies. Midweek there will be a huge change in the pattern with a low and arctic front that will approach late Tuesday night and early Wednesday. This system has the potential to bring rain initially with drastically changing temps causing rain to change to snow by Wednesday morning. There is the potential for some accumulating snow. Stay tuned as this storm is still far out and there could be several different forecast tracks.
Some mild air will move back in behind this storm but generally a trend towards colder moist air looks likely by the weekend and the following week.
