Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
A front will lift well North tonight ahead of an approaching low that will bring very mild air to the region tomorrow. Some freezing rain will develop late tonight with a quick coating of ice in spots but a quick change over to plain rain by dawn will occur as temperatures rebound above freezing by morning. Tomorrow a few rain showers will fall but most precipitation will fall NW of the region. A cold front will move across the region late tomorrow night bringing a steady light rain with it, before it leaves rain will change to some light snow by dawn Sunday. Some light accumulations may be experienced in a few regions. Colder air will accompany the area through Monday night, before another low develops out of Texas and moves NE bringing our next chance of heavy rain with some snow on the back end. Behind this system very cold air will return as temperatures will get back to teens and single digits.
