We’ve been tracking this clipper system for a couple of days and here it is! The precipitation started out as rain for much of the central and southern half of the Miami Valley while it fell as snow for the northern half.
The Winter Weather Advisory was extended to Preble, Montgomery, Greene and Clinton counties earlier today. This advisory is in effect until 7 a.m. Monday.
Here’s a look at the 7 p.m. radar image:
Notice the rain/snow line is continuing to move farther south. The rain will exit by 10 p.m. and the entire area will change over to snow.
We’ve had a couple of pictures sent to us via firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a great picture, tweet, email or facebook us a photo! Please include your location.
Lakeview is in Logan county. There’s a lot more snow there because the precipitation stayed mostly snow there. Chris in Arcanum reported seeing a wet and easily packed snow. While that may be the case for a few more hours it will change to a light and fluffy snow as temperatures fall.
Here’s a look at the temperatures from 7 p.m.
Notice the temperatures are already in the 20′s in the northern half while readings are still in the 30′s in Dayton.
Winds have picked up too. These are wind speeds around 7 p.m.
Winds will be gusty at 10 to 20 miles per hour. With the snow becoming light and fluffy we’ll see some blowing and drifting late tonight and early Monday morning.
Accumulations will be highest in the northern half and amounts drop off as you head south.
The snow will finally come to an end very early Monday morning. We’ll be colder, breezy and cloudy for the afternoon.
Be careful Monday morning! There may be some icy patches from the rain we saw earlier today. Temperatures will fall below freezing so some roadways may ice up.
Have a wonderful week and be safe!
