Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
A Arctic front has just moved through this morning this will continue to bring colder air, am flurries and breezy conditions. Tonight lows will be near zero in spots. Cold wind chills will be felt tonight and tomorrow morning. High pressure moves east allowing temperatures to rise a bit into tomorrow . A warm front will give the area some light snow tomorrow night. Temperatures warm decently on Saturday before a arctic front and a strong storm approaching from the West combine to make for a possible major winter storm Saturday night into Monday. Details are still up in the air as this system is still out in the Pacific Ocean and there are plenty of model runs to be taken into consideration. However current model runs suggest significant snowfall and ice accumulations are likely. Stay tuned.
Colder air will once again filter in behind this storm and dominate most of next week.
