Total snow accumulation is expected between 2 and 4 inches for most, with isolated higher amounts closer to the Interstate 71 corridor. Gusty winds will create blowing and drifting snow overnight.

DETAILED FORECAST

Friday: WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY will be in effect through most of the day. Rain quickly will change to freezing rain and sleet by midday, and then to snow late in the day or evening. Snow will be likely as we head through Friday night. There will be a chance for some ice accumulation before the precipitation changes to snow. Snowfall amounts will range from around 3 to 5 inches across the Miami Valley. A bit less is possible northwest and a bit more can’t be ruled out farther south and east. Gusty winds will develop Friday night and create blowing and drifting snow – likely reducing visibility. Temperatures will drop into the 20s by evening.

Winter storm timeline: When the storm will hit where you live

Published: Thursday, January 11, 2018 @ 6:24 AM

Rain will transition to snow into Friday leading to a messy evening commute.

Don't let the spring-like weather fool you Thursday. A winter storm is still going to impact the Miami Valley Friday. 

Here’s the latest projected timing of the storm:

FRIDAY: Rain showers will impact most of the area before 8 a.m.. A transition to a wintry mix of sleet and freezing rain will develop between 7 and 10 a.m. in communities like Celina, Wapakoneta, Sidney and Greenville. The cold air will transition the central Miami Valley to a wintry mix from 12 p.m. into the early afternoon in the Dayton area. Everyone then has the chance to see scattered snow for the evening drive. The chance for a light glaze of ice then snow will keep the roads slick Friday into Saturday morning.

SATURDAY: Active snow will end very quickly overnight. Most of the impacts Saturday will come from refreeze and blowing/drifting snow. Saturday will be much colder so anything wet or untreated could stay snowy or icy. Gusts around 30MPH will be possible. Temperatures overnight will drop into the single digits!

The combination of a wintry mix and snow (likely two to four inches w/isolated higher amounts) will make this system impactful.
