High pressure is building in for the day ahead, and this means nice quiet weather before the next storm arrives tomorrow. Morning temperatures have dropped into the teens across the Miami Valley, so watch for black ice for the drive to work. We have several school closings/delays because of slick conditions, and you can always get the full list here: WDTN SCHOOL CLOSINGS/DELAYS.
There may be MORE school delays to deal with on Tuesday, as the next storm system moves in. It will arrive in the early morning… and initially, it will be cold enough for some sleet or freezing rain throughout the Miami Valley:
We could pick up some light ice accumulation, which would make for a slick morning drive. Temperatures will warm to above freezing as we head into mid and late morning, so we will see a change over to rain… with improving travel conditions. And it will be a significant warm-up for the afternoon, with highs getting up near 50-degrees! We expect on and off showers during the day, with breezy conditions. As the front approaches us in the late afternoon and evening, there will be the potential for heavy rain in some areas:
And with the snow on the ground… melting + heavy rain (could) = flooding problems. The ground will be extremely saturated, so run-off will be an issue… be sure you stay tuned to the forecast for the latest.
As the system pulls away on Wednesday, colder air will be working back into the region. So we will see the slight chance of rain/snow showers in the morning. There are then model differences on what will happen Wednesday EVENING. There looks to be a zone of snow developing south of us… how far north this will be is in question. So stay tuned to the forecast on this, as well!
