Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
Very warm and breezy at times with highs approaching 80 in a few locations today. A front will slide in during the day tomorrow bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms with heavy rain at times. Very breezy conditions will accompany this front ushering in much colder air overnight Monday night and Tuesday morning. Another weak low will travel along the front late Monday night and early Tuesday bringing another round of showers that will mix with and change to snow. A few locations may see a coating of snow on grassy surfaces but most areas just see flakes, but expect a breezy and cold day with highs struggling to get out of the 30s Tuesday. High pressure settles in Wednesday am bringing clearing skies and light winds. This will likely result in a hard freeze. Cover any plants that are tender and blooming.
Another front moves in late week and early weekend with showers and storms and a return to milder air. Easter as of now looks chilly but drier as the front clears the area early in the weekend.
