Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
A cold front will move through the region tonight bringing temperatures back below freezing by dawn. Rain will overspread the region around midnight eventually mixing with and changing to snow. Around one to isolated two inches will be possible by tomorrow morning. Cold air will filter in tomorrow and stay intrenched through Tuesday. Current forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday's storm is for it to track just SE of I-71. This would put the region in an snow,sleet, freezing rain, rain combo changing to snow on the back side. Some locations along and SE of I-71 could see a period of just rain. This would cut down on snow totals significantly. However if this storm track is further SE than higher snow totals could be felt. Stay tuned as there are several more model runs to be analyzed. This storm has the potential to bring significant impacts to the region.
Behind this storm arctic air will make a return with highs in the teens and lows in the single digits.
