Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
A band of snow showers will effect some locations overnight giving some areas a coating to one inch of snow along with blustery conditions. Wind chills will dip below zero by dawn. Tomorrow high pressure builds back in allowing for sunshine but cold temps to stick around. SW flow returns strong ahead a front that will approach the area late Friday night and Saturday. This will rebound temps back into the 50s on Friday with sunshine. A few rain showers will accompany the front Saturday morning. Temps will not respond until Saturday night and Sunday when they will fall back below normal levels.
After Sunday and Monday's cool down milder air will make a return Midweek next week with temps rebounding again into the 50s if not near 60.
