DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The winter storm that swept through the Miami Valley late Tuesday into Wednesday morning set us up for several cold days ahead.

The storm brought all snow to the north of Dayton.  In the southern counties, it was a mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain.  Now, we’re looking at colder temperatures than normal.

Snowfall totals ranged from a high of nine inches reported in the Mercer County town of Coldwater and three and a half inches in Moraine in Montgomery County.

In the southern portion of the Miami Valley, the wintry mix that fell held down the snowfall totals and left a crusty layer of ice on top.

“The cold weather is settling in now,” said Chief Meteorologist Brian Davis.  “The high Thursday is only 18 degrees.  Below normal temperatures will continue into Thursday and Friday.”

Arctic air will arrive Thursday and Friday, with highs in the teens and lows in the single digits. Wind chill values at night will dip below zero

“We’re already watching the upcoming weekend for the potential of more snow showers,” Meteorologist Jamie Jarosik warns. “We will keep you posted.”
