DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The heaviest of the freezing rain and snow moved east of the Miami Valley Monday night.

The Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for our northern counties.

Continue to watch for icy patches overnight. Mercer County is under a Level 2 Snow Advisory due to blowing and drifting snow. The Sheriff’s Office says some roads are impassable. Darke and Logan counties are under a Level 1 Snow Advisory. That means roads are slippery and you should use caution while out driving overnight.

“The problems we saw are because the ground temperature is still below zero, so the ice can’t melt as easily once it is on the ground,” said Storm Team 2 Chief Meteorologist Brian Davis.

Any accumulation in the Dayton area should be under an inch. Total accumulations are about three to four inches up north.

Compared to other storms this winter, this a short lived event. It warms up Tuesday to 40, becoming mostly sunny and breezy.
