Right now we have a mix of sleet and freezing rain around the Miami Valley. You can track the radar by clicking here
Here’s a great photo we received from twitter. You can tweet me, facebook with reports or send photos to email@example.com
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the entire Miami Valley until 4pm Monday.
Notice the bright purple color – that’s an Ice Storm Warning for the Indianapolis area. They are seeing significant icing right now and could get up to a quarter of an inch of ice.
We have the chance to see a lot of different forms of precipitation tonight and Monday. Sleet, freezing rain, rain and snow. Here’s how things will time out:
It looks like most of the Miami Valley will see some sleet and freezing rain. Especially along the I-70 corridor. Ice amounts will be around a tenth to maybe .15″ Areas farther north will see sleet and snow. Here’s how things will break down
Freezing rain and sleet will be possible tonight. One thing I am worried about is rain. Some of the computer models were a little warmer today and brought rain into the area around midnight. This may melt what ice we do accumulate tonight but more freezing rain could form before sunrise.
If temperatures differ by just a few degrees it means the difference between rain and freezing rain.
Precipitation will continue through the overnight hours: either sleet, freezing rain or rain – depending on where you live.
By 6am we’ll see the chance for some sleet and freezing rain before it gradually changes to snow. Temperatures will fall throughout the day. Again not seeing much with accumulating snow – maybe an inch or two farther north.
After the precipitation comes to an end after noon Monday we’ll see cold air return. Any wet surfaces will freeze as temperatures drop into the single digits by Tuesday morning.
Stay warm and stay safe!
