Springboro — UPDATE @ 11:15 p.m.
Ohio 741 near Red Lion-Five Points Road is open to traffic after it was shut down for hours this evening.
A driver only had minor injuries, but the power pole the man hit was damaged beyond repair in the crash that happened around 2:30 p.m. The crash area was shut down while a Duke Energy crew replaced the utility pole. By 11 p.m., the roadway was back open.
UPDATE @ 4:45 p.m.
Those headed to the 5:30 p.m. Springboro High School boys basketball scrimmage, coming from south of Ohio 741 and Red Lion-Five Points Road, should use Interstate 75 to get to the game.

— QUICK-LOOK FORECAST
TUESDAY: Some snow showers have made their way up from the south with temperatures being at or below freezing for the morning, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini. Rain and freezing rain will mix for the next couple of hours with main roads staying above freezing after a mild and sunny day, but a light ice accumulation could develop on elevated surfaces, bridges, and overpasses before and around sunrise. Drivers should take their time if they are out before the sun comes up. Temperatures improve by climbing to the low 40s after sunrise with some dry time expected in the middle of the day. Moisture brings rain showers back towards late afternoon with cold air transitioning everyone to snow for evening hours between 7 and 9 p.m. Expect snow to accumulate through the night. Winds will gust around 30 mph this afternoon and tonight, so drivers should watch for slick roads and poor visibility as a result.
WEDNESDAY: A messy morning commute is expected with temperatures in the 20s and snow still falling. Winds will still gust around 30 mph, so blowing, drifting, and poor visibility are possible. Snow will taper off into the afternoon as moisture shifts east, but overall most of the Miami Valley will end up with around 2 to 4 inches of snow with some areas seeing closer to 5 inches. It’ll be breezy for the rest of the day with mostly cloudy skies and highs in the mid-30s. Chilly temperatures overnight drop to the low 20s.
THURSDAY: Refreeze or lingering snowy roads are possible early since temperatures will be in the low 20s. However, they’ll be big improvements through the day as sunshine returns and temperatures peak in the low 40s. Expect it to be dry throughout the entire day.
FRIDAY: A sunny start with clouds increasing through the day. Highs will peak in the mid-40s as passing showers develop overnight.
SATURDAY: Morning temperatures starting in the upper 20s could mean a brief wintry mix. Rain showers through the afternoon may end as wet snow. Highs reach in the low 40s.

MIAMI VALLEY — Spring will officially arrive at 12:15 p.m. today, but someone forgot to tell Mother Nature. A winter storm is taking aim on the Miami Valley and will bring a mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow to the region starting this morning.
RELATED: Winter Weather Advisory in effect
Precipitation is expected to develop early today across the far southern Miami Valley and spread northward toward I-70 by daybreak. Much of the precipitation will fall as rain, but as temperatures drop toward daybreak, a band of freezing rain is possible.
The morning commute may not be too bad, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Eric Elwell said.
"The last few days of mild temperatures has helped push road surface temperatures well above freezing. That means that main roads should just be wet early Tuesday," he said. "However, elevated surfaces like cars, bridges and decks could become slippery."
But the wintry weather won't be over yet.
A Winter Weather Advisory will go into effect as of 8 p.m. tonight and continue until 8 p.m. Wednesday. A break in the precipitation is expected midday today before returning in the evening. As temperatures drop after sunset, snow will become the primary form of precipitation and it will increase in coverage and intensity tonight, Elwell said.
"Snowfall amounts will generally range from 2 to 4 inches by mid-morning Wednesday," Elwell said. "But isolated higher amounts are possible.
This is something we'll have to watch closely as new model data comes in."
