PHOTOS: On your marks – get set – SHOVEL!

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – If you haven’t heard yet winter weather is on the way.

A Winter Weather Advisory went into effect Friday morning, and continues through 10:00 am Saturday for the entire Miami Valley.

Trees in the area are beginning to get ice-covered. Maggie Reckers sent us this photo from Eaton.


Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Jamie Jarosik says a strong cold front moved through the Miami Valley Friday morning. Temperatures have dropped sharply in the wake of that front.

Rain will change to freezing rain and sleet by Friday afternoon, and then we’ll see a transition to snow by late afternoon and evening. There has been some water standing on roadways across the area already Friday morning.

Be prepared for tough travel conditions late in the day, and into the evening and night.  Accumulating snow will end shortly after midnight Friday night into Saturday morning.

There are dozens of school, church and business closings due to the weather. See if you are affected by these by heading to the closings page.

FRIDAY NIGHT:  Periods of snow in the evening with a few flurries after midnight.  Total snow accumulations of 2 to 4 inches are expected.  Low 14

SATURDAY:  Mostly cloudy, breezy and cold with a very slight chance of a flurry.  High 18

SUNDAY: Partly sunny and very cold. High 16

Cold weather returns for the weekend and early next week. More accumulating snow will be likely on MLK day.
