Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
Afternoon sun and clouds will be the story today as high pressure takes control for a bit. Then clouds increase tonight as a arctic front slips South and another clipper tracks just to our South. Some areas South and East will see a coating of snow but the main story will be cold air in the single digits by dawn tomorrow morning. Winds will be gusty at times tonight as this low begins to strengthen of the coast by tomorrow morning. These winds will combine with cold air making for cold wind chills near -12 at times. Tomorrow high pressure will build in allowing clear skies to return and keeping cold locked in through Friday.
Another storm system will work its way North over the weekend bringing precipitation North into cold air. How much cold air stay in place will determine how much frozen precipitation this storm will bring. Behind this storm more cold air looks to spill in early next week hanging tough through at least the first half of March.
