Plenty of Snow, Now We Add Wind

Well here at the station we have seen 6" of snow and it is almost completely over.  The forecast held just as thought.  The far Northern Miami Valley saw 2-4"....and the central and southern part of the area saw about 3-5, with quite a few locations picking up around 6".  Now that it all has fallen, we have clearing skies building in.  The combination of clearing skies and a very fresh snow-pack will allow temperatures to fall near zero overnight.  In addition to that, another sweeping cold front is blowing across the upper plains with strong winds behind it at about 10-20 miles per hour, with stronger gusts.  This will drive the wind chills to around -10 to -15 overnight and blowing and drifting snow will be a huge problem as well.  I am set to be back at 4:30 AM to head to Darke County for live reports for the morning snow. They have about 6" of snow and since they are so rural, they always tend to get the worst drifting around the Miami Valley, so hopefully I make it there safe.  Be careful out there, make the best of the fresh snow, and have a good one!
