Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
A weakening clipper will move across the region today and tonight. It will bring two rounds of snow one batch early on in the day with snowfall amounts 1 to 2 inches. The highest totals will be along and North of I-70. The second batch will be later on tonight with a very strong arctic front. Totals from this snowfall will be once again 1 to 2 inches. Totals across the region will be generally 2 to 4 inches. This front will drop temperatures to the lowest levels we have seen in years. Winds will be southerly today with gust to 35 mph. Then as the front makes it through winds will switch NW with gust to 30 mph again late tonight. This will likely cause more drifting and blowing snow.
Wind chills Monday through Wednesday am will likely be as low as -37. Use caution when out doors and dress appropriately.
