A warm front will be lifting into the Miami Valley today, keeping the rain chance high through the morning hours:
Initially, we’ve seen a brief period of freezing rain along the leading edge of this moisture. I have also had a report of some sleet mixing in in Montgomery Co. We don’t expect any major icing, but be aware there could be some isolated slick spots to deal with. We will see the steady rain taper off to some scattered showers in the afternoon, but we will experience some dry time, too. A few showers will be possible overnight, but the first part of Saturday looks fairly quiet, as you can see on Futuretrac:
The rain chance will really increase late Saturday afternoon into the evening, as another large area of rain spreads in:
That will stick around overnight and into Sunday. This system will drag a cold front through the area early Sunday morning. This will quickly usher in much colder air, and chance rain showers over to scattered snow showers that will linger through the day. It will also be breezy, and will feel more winter-like again! At this point, any snow accumulation looks to be light, but slick spots will still be possible. Here is an early look at what we can expect:
The numbers could change a bit between now and then, so check back with @WDTN later this evening, and again over the weekend for an update. Another blast of cold air will be firmly in place through the first part of next week. Highs will be in the 20s, and lows down into the teens. There could even be some scattered snow showers on Tuesday, as a quick moving system drops in from the northwest.
