DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The snowy storm system that blew through is giving way to arctic air.  It also left some slick spots for the Thursday morning commute, but things are looking up.

The heaviest snow was well to the south and east of Dayton.  50 flights were canceled out of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport as a result of heavy snow in the Cincinnati area.  The Dayton area saw up to three inches of snow, while only a half inch fell in the northern counties.

Thursday, the issue is temperatures. “We’ll be a good 20 to 25 degrees below normal,” said Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Jamie Jarosik. “That cold air will keep cold through the weekend when a warm up will finally head us toward normal.”

The low Friday morning is a frigid 0, rebounding to 28 Friday. While that is well below normal, there will be a lot of sunshine Friday, helping it feel warmer.

“The good news is we’re in for a dry stretch through much of next week. Temperatures will be seasonal,” said Jarosik.

Temperatures will head into the 40s mid week.
