Blowing snow continues through Monday morning

WX FORECAST
MIAMI VALLEY (WDTN) — Another round of snow is hitting the Miami Valley this morning.  Visibility has dropped to a mile in many locations.  The snow along with gusty wind will create blowing and drifting snow.   Sustained wind speeds will be between 10 and 20 miles per hour but will gust to 30 and 35 mph.  While we’ll only see a few inches of accumulation the wind will make things difficult.   
“The snow has already begun and will continue through the lunch hour,” says Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Tara Hastings.  “Accumulations will be about 1-3 inches in most spots but like with Saturday morning blowing and drifting snow will be a concern again.” 
The National Weather Service in Wilmington has extended the Winter Weather Advisory through Monday morning. 
“Snow will taper around 1pm Sunday but the winds will stay gusty,” Hastings says.  “Highs will be around freezing for the afternoon.  We’ll see another round of light snow that may mix with sleet for Sunday evening before the cold air arrives.” 
Another arctic blast keeps highs in the single digits for Monday and Tuesday with lows at night well below zero. The National Weather Service has already issued a Wind Chill Watch from 1pm Monday to 10am Wednesday.  Dangerous wind chills are likely Tuesday and Wednesday morning.
