The system that moved through the Miami Valley Sunday into early this morning brought rain-to-snow across the region. We saw anywhere from 1.5″ to 5″ across the Miami Valley. Here is a map with some of the snow totals we received:
The snow is over, but a north wind between 10-20 mph through at least noon, will keep the potential for blowing and drifting snow around. Those winds are also bringing in much colder air… and highs will be more than 10-degrees colder than they were Sunday. We will top out in the mid-20s this afternoon.
Now the storm system will strengthen as it moves up the east coast. Not only could some of the major metropolitan areas see 1 to 2 FEET of snow, but the winds will also increase to between 50-70mph at times. This is why Blizzard Warnings are in effect:
Travel is NOT recommended in the areas under the warnings… and we expect many airline cancellations/delays.
A quick-moving system will pass just west of us, and we expect clouds to linger today… but dry conditions to continue through really Wednesday afternoon. The next system for us to watch will be on Thursday. It looks like this one will draw in enough warm air to see mostly rain vs. snow… but a change-over could occur. We will watch it… and we turn cold again after that.
