Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
Some light snow tonight and tomorrow could cause some slick spots on area roadways. Most areas will only receive under an inch with the most likely chances of accumulating snow possible North of I-70. Winds could occasionally gust to 35 mph tomorrow behind a strengthening low pressure system on the East coast. This could cause snow that is already on the ground to blow and drift, making back country roads slick.
A very strong and mild storm system will effect the region this weekend. If the region stays on the mild side of the storm, which is the current thinking, 1 to 5 inches of heavy rain on frozen ground could cause significant flooding issues. Stay tuned as there is still uncertainty as to the exact track.
