Tuesday: Showers likely, windy and turning chilly. Temperatures will start in the 50s, but fall into the afternoon as the front settles to the southeast. Rain may have a few pockets of moderate downpours. The timing of the front exiting and the cold air moving in is something to watch. There may be some changeover from rain to snow before the precipitation shuts off. 

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy, breezy and much colder. Temperatures will range from the upper 20s early to the middle 30s for the afternoon. Wind chills will be in the teens and 20s.

Today: A refreeze is possible this morning as temperatures drop to around 20 degrees, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini. Side streets and rural roads could see slick spots. Sunshine today will help melt the snow and warm road temperatures. Highs will be in the low 40s. It will be quiet and dry.

Friday: It will be another cold morning with temperatures in the 20s. Highs will be in the mid-40s. There will be sunshine early with clouds increasing through the day. 

>> County-by-County Weather

Saturday: A Winter Storm Watch will go into effect from 2 a.m. Saturday until 2 a.m. Sunday for the following counties: Wayne, Preble, Montgomery, Butler, Darke, and Warren counties 

Another quick moving system may impact the Miami Valley. There’s still uncertainty on the exact track of the system and its intensity, which will have big impacts on snow, rain amounts and totals. For now, it looks like Saturday morning through the afternoon we’ll see some moisture. Right now, moisture looks to be falling as snow, and could produce accumulation along and south of Interstate 70. Road temperatures will be warm after two sunny days, which should help to reduce road impacts. Highs will be in the upper 30s to around 40.

Sunday: It will be a great end to the weekend with highs in the mid 40s and clear skies.

Monday: It will warm up to start the new week. We’ll see sunshine and highs in the low 50s.
