Scattered snow showers are impacting the region for the morning drive.  A wide look at Live Doppler 2HD this AM:

Although accumulation will be light… the thing to remember is that the snow may come down heavy at times.  We’ve already seen this, with near-whiteout conditions reported in some of the heavier showers.  This puts down a quick dusting-to-half inch, and makes things slick very fast!  Total accumulation will be a half-inch or less, but some isolated areas could see closer to the 1″ mark.  The chance of snow will gradually taper off as we head through the afternoon hours.

Today will be the coldest day of the week, as highs only climb into the low and mid 30s.  There will also be a brisk west-northwest wind, making it feel like the 20s through most of the day.  Lots of clouds during the day, but they are expected to break a bit tonight.  This will allow temps to dip down near 20-degrees through early Thursday.  It also means… some SUN!!  Yes, the first part of Thursday looks to be bright, but clouds will again be on the increase later in the day:

As shown on Futuretrac, by evening, there’s another area of showers approaching the Miami Valley.  These could be rain or snow showers Thursday night into Friday morning.  But what a nice recovery Friday afternoon as we make a run at 50-degrees!
