Light snow overnight really left the roads tricky this morning. The rain moved out yesterday and temps just plummeted; cooling it off enough for the snow to stick to the pavement. Temperatures this morning are about twenty-five degrees colder than yesterday. There is not A LOT of snow on the roads, but sometimes that is when it's worse because it's deceiving. So be careful... more snow is on the way. Luckily my commute is primarily back roads so I was able to stop in the middle of the road for this picture...I was NOT driving.
Well the light morning show will start to taper off and we will see a little afternoon sunshine, but only a high in the low 30's. Tonight we will see the clouds increase and a chance for snow through the day tomorrow, especially north of I-70. The far Northern parts of the Miami Valley could see a little more than 1" of snow. I think the area between US 36 and I-70 could see up to 1". Dayton and south could see maybe a dusting tomorrow, but the majority of the system looks to stay to the north. We will stay in the lower 30's for highs tomorrow and Friday, but Friday night we could be dealing with a little ice. The last couple of model runs appear to be hinting at some freezing rain, but the temperatures will play the main role into what we will exactly see falling from the sky...so we will have to wait until it gets a little closer to pinpoint the type of precip we will see Friday night into Saturday morning. Temps will slowly warm up heading into the weekend and next week. Right now we look to be dry most of the weekend, but rain will return next week. Stay warm, stay safe, and have a good one!
