Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
Sunny skies and cooler today but still mild considering the changes for tomorrow through Monday. Chilly air will settle in late tonight as a storm system begins to pull cold air from the NE late with winds picking up and gusting at times to 30 mph by Sunday morning. Latest model runs show a very narrow band of heavy snow that could fall late Sunday evening and night just to our SE, Just North of the Ohio River. Our region may see some light accumulations South of US 35. However a 25 to 50 mile northward shift could mean several inches of snow, but a 25 or 50 mile shift South would mean little if anything. Strong winds will keep temps below freezing and dropping into the 20s by Monday morning. Stay tuned for further updates or possible changes to this storm track.
Another moderating trend will be felt Monday and into Tuesday behind this storm with temps back to near 50 by Tuesday. It appears we will continue this pattern of a few days of warm followed by a few days of cold and chances of rain/snow for the next week at least.
The following is the seven day forecast for the Dayton metro area and a 50 mile radius around it. Other metro areas like Columbus, Cincinnati, and Portsmouth are not included. For those areas please request a separate forecast. Thanks.
