Chance for rain, snow returns this week

Published: Sunday, March 18, 2018 @ 5:00 AM
Updated: Sunday, March 18, 2018 @ 8:57 PM

Rain and snow are expected to return this week in the Dayton area.

A quiet night is expected with temperatures overnight dropping into the lower 30s, Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Brett Collar  said.


  • Rain returns Monday evening
  • Snow expected Tuesday and Wednesday
  • Lower temperatures this week

>>Live Doppler 7 Interactive Radar


Monday: Clouds will increase through the day with highs in the lower to middle 50s. The chance for rain returns in the evening, and with temperatures falling past sunset, a few wet flakes may mix in as well.

>>County-by-County Forecast 

Tuesday: The chance for snow is increasing, as more recent model runs are becoming more consistent and are agreeing more on the chance for snow. We’re calling for snow on Tuesday, some of which could be heavy at times. This snow looks to continue into Wednesday as well. Highs will be in the lower 40s early in the morning with most of the day staying in the 30s. 

>>WHIO Weather App

Wednesday: Snow is likely to continue into Wednesday, especially earlier in the day. By the time the snow wraps up, it looks like we’ll see a couple of inches of snow accumulation, however, there is still a lot of time between now and the event, allowing time for the track to change course. This will have a large effect on just how much snow we see. Temperatures will be in the upper 30s for the day. 

>>Severe Weather Guide

Thursday: Partly sunny skies are expected with highs in the lower 40s.

Friday: A dry start is expected, but the chance for rain returns at night. Highs will be in the middle 40s.
