Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
Hazardous Outlook: A cold front will bring scattered snow squalls to the region today. Some of the squalls will reduce visibilities down to zero at times. Also winds will occasionally gusts up to 30 mph in these squalls, this combined with an inch or less of snow will make for slick road ways at times today.
Temperatures will be near 32 this morning ahead of the front. Behind the front temperatures will drop into the teens by afternoon and eventually the single digits tonight.
An Alberta Clipper will track SE tomorrow evening and tomorrow night. Current thinking is that 1 to 3 inches of snow will possible between Dayton and Cincinnati. Some locally higher amounts are possible. Road conditions will deteriorate tomorrow evening and night. Use caution when out.
Very cold wind chills possible next week. An arctic front combined with strong winds will likely bring in very cold air next week. Temperatures are not expected to be as cold as the past arctic outbreak but temperatures will be close to 0 at times and winds will make for wind chills in the negative teens possible. Stay tuned for further details.
