St. Patrick’s Day: Freezing rain could impact celebration

Published: Thursday, March 15, 2018 @ 6:53 AM
Updated: Friday, March 16, 2018 @ 1:27 PM

Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini breaks down the next system that can impact your St. Patty's Day.

A storm system will approach the Miami Valley just in time for St. Patrick's Day, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Brett Collar. Early Saturday morning the system will bring freezing rain and possible ice acccumulation. 

Slick roads and icy sidewalks could be an issue beginning at 4am Saturday, and last through noon. 

>> WHIO Doppler 7 Interactive Radar

  • Back roads and sidewalks may be untreated
  • Be aware of slippery surfaces if starting your party early
  • Winter Weather Advisory early Saturday so wear an extra layer for outdoor festivities. 


Prior to sunrise Saturday, freezing rain is set to move in from the west. This will become more widespread around sunrise and that’s when ice accumulation will start to become a big issue. This will continue through the morning hours but by 10am or 11am, we should start to see a transition over to rain as temperatures climb above freezing. Untreated surfaces however are likely to still be icy through lunch time.
