DAYTON REGION — Days and days of frigid air and multiple storms are so far marking the winter of 2017-18 in the Dayton region.
Champaign and Logan counties remain under a Level One snow emergency as of Tuesday morning. Roadways throughout the region are slick because of the thin covering of ice and snow left behind after a day of snow showers.
A wind chill advisory that went into effect at 11 Monday night will remain in effect until Tuesday afternoon.
Scattered snow showers during the Monday afternoon commute left behind a dusting to 2 inches.
Drivers should accelerate and deaccelerate more slowly during bad weather and drive a speed reasonable for the conditions, said Sgt. Mark Bowron, traffic reporter for WHIO Radio.
Braking on icy roads takes much longer than on dry pavement, increasing stopping times 8 to 10 seconds, Bowron said. On dry pavement, stop times usually fall in a range of 3 to 4 seconds.
Here are some Monday snowfall totals in local communities:
Troy 1.3 inches
Celina 1.0 inch
Dayton International Airport 0.9 inches
Lebanon 0.5 inches
West Alexandria 0.5 inches
Bellefontaine 0.9 inches
Springfield 0.8 inches
Xenia 0.6 inches
Fairborn 2.0 inches
Versailles 1.0 inch
Sidney 1.0 inch
Lebanon 0.5 inches

One woman was killed after her Fairborn home caught fire and exploded early Monday morning.
Firefighters responded to the 400 block of Forest Street around 10:50 a.m. after being flooded with calls about heavy smoke conditions from the fire, according to initial reports.
Before their arrival, neighbors who heard the explosion and seen the smoke attempted to rescue the woman by creating a human chain to enter the home.
“Everyone in the neighborhood ran toward the home trying to help the woman and protect her family from this kind of loss”, said neighbor Cathy Sheward.
Unfortunately, their efforts were unsuccessful due to the smoke being unbearable.
While on scene, fire crews attempted to clear the smoke by cutting holes in the roof which prompted a search confirming the woman was inside the home, per officials.
Crews did experience another explosion during the search, but there are no reports of injuries as a result.
The Greene County Coroner’s office arrived shortly after the woman was pronounced dead on scene.
The identification of the woman is being withheld at this time until family has been notified.
We will continue to update this story as details become available.
