Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
A front will move through the region tonight bringing showers and few rumbles of thunder early then clearing will take place by dawn with cooler temps by dawn. Tomorrow sunshine returns but with temps only rebounding into the upper 40s to near 50. Chilly air will settle in late tomorrow night as a storm system begins to pull cold air from the NE late with winds picking up and gusting at times to 30 mph by Sunday morning. Current model runs show a very narrow band of heavy snow that could fall late Sunday evening and night just to our SE. Our region may see some light accumulations. However a 25 to 50 mile northward shift could mean several inches of snow. Strong winds will keep temps below freezing and dropping into the 20s Monday morning.
Another moderating trend will be felt Monday and into Tuesday behind this storm with temps back to near 50 by Tuesday. It appears we will continue this pattern of a few days of warm followed by a few days of cold and chances of rain/snow for the next week at least.
