Storm moves east, leaves icy cold conditons


DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The late winter storm that roared into March like a lion has moved on to the east, leaving the Miami valley with a layer of snow-covered ice and with very cold temperatures.

Snowfall totals were not as deep as originally expected, with the northern counties seeing two to four inches and an average of about three inches in the Dayton area and to the south.

The cold is the concern now, with a Wind Chill Advisory remaining effect until 1 p.m. for the counties of Auglaize, Champaign, Darke, Logan, Mercer, Miami, Shelby, and Wayne County, Ind.

Wind chills will register as cold as 7 below.

Any remaining flurries end early Monday with skies becoming mostly sunny for the afternoon with a high temperature of 18.

Monday night will drop to zero.
