Winter Storm Looms
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.
