Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
Sunny skies with an increase in high clouds by pm today under weak high pressure will allow temps to rise into the middle 50s. Late tonight and tomorrow a front will move through bringing gusty winds to 40 possibly 50 mph at times and some rain showers followed by colder air tomorrow night. High pressure returns Thursday with moderating temps once again with highs by Friday approaching the middle 60s before an arctic front comes through Saturday.
Behind Saturday's front it appears that very chilly air returns with chances for snow increasing by midweek next week as the winter of 2013-2014 never ends.
