Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
High pressure will weaken today allowing for clouds to build by late day and colder temps to stay in place. Tonight a weak low will begin to push in from the West late bringing a chance of snow showers by dawn. Snow showers will be more dominant tomorrow but scattered in nature as this low moves East and joins forces with a low off the East coast. Some light accumulation of an inch or less will be possible tomorrow but temps will be generally above freezing keeping accumulations light and mainly on grassy surfaces. Tomorrow night we can expect a few more snow showers as both of the lows pull away giving a few locations South and East another coating. This batch may coat some roadways as dark will fall upon us so use caution when out late tomorrow night. By Wednesday high pressure returns but cold air remains for one more day. Rain showers, milder air, and breezy conditions return by late Thursday as we head into a pattern change, one with a more springlike feel.
The new pattern will consist a few smaller cold outbreaks but it appears milder air will dominate with quick moving springlike storm systems.
