WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE — A soggy start to your Monday is expected.
Widespread showers will be around during the morning, some of which could be heavy at times. There is even the chance for a few rumbles of thunder.
Ponding on the roads will be a concern through the morning. Even though we’re expecting a lot of rain and clouds Monday, temperatures will warm into the 60s in the afternoon.

— QUICK-LOOK FORECAST
Today: It will be a quiet and cold morning with temperatures in the 30s, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini. There will be some sunshine early with clouds increasing late day. It will be dry during the day and warmer than normal with highs in the mid-50s. Some rain showers will start to arrive from the south later tonight. Cold air will cut in and a wintry mix will develop toward morning.
Tuesday: Spring starts at 12:15 p.m. with the vernal equinox, but it certainly won’t feel like spring. A wintry mix is possible, and anything untreated or elevated could become slick as temperatures will start out in the upper 20s. Any surface below freezing could see some light freezing rain. Moisture will continue to stream into the Miami Valley. A rain/snow mix is possible in the afternoon with temperatures in the 30s and low 40s. It will become breezy. Scattered snow will take over into the evening and continues overnight. Winds will gust around 25 mph.
Wednesday: Scattered snow showers will be falling and will likely create a slick morning commute. Snow will not taper off until the evening hours. Highs will be in the mid-30s. Accumulating snow is expected by morning and through the day. The placement and intensity of this system can still change, but snow is expected to coat the roads by morning and will continue to accumulate during the day. It will be dry for the night, but it will be cold as temperatures drop into the mid-20s.
Thursday: There may be a lingering slick spot in the morning. The day looks to be dry and back into the mid-40s. There will be some sunshine as well.

— 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.
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.

MIAMI COUNTY — UPDATE @ 12:30 p.m.:
The Miami County Coroner’s Office has identified the victim of a fatal crash on Interstate 75 in Tipp City as Ibrahimi Abdelmaguid, 49, of Dearborn Heights, Michigan.
Additional details were not available.
UPDATE @6:39 a.m.
One person died when two semi-tractor trailers collided on Interstate 75 in Tipp City during white-out conditions Thursday morning.
According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, one semi rear-ended another semi, lost control and struck the median wall in the crash on southbound I-75. The driver of the at-fault semi was taken to Upper Valley Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. A passenger in the sleeper section was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the semi that was struck was not hurt.
Troopers said white-out conditions are to blame for the crash.
Interstate 75 is extremely slick with at least one fatal crash reported and multiple slide-offs.
A fatal crash was reported on southbound I-75 between the 69 and 70 mile markers in the Tipp City area shortly before 4 a.m., according to reports.
Our crew in the area said the highway is extremely slick, and video shows the highway is a sheet of ice. Anyone on highways should use extreme caution.
We are working to learn more about the fatal crash.
