Light snow through the overnight hours have roads coated in the Miami Valley causing some slick conditions. More snow pushes through this afternoon, meaning poor visibility and snow covered roads could be a problem for the evening commute as well.

Computer weather models indicate two bands of snow:

The first band of snow arrived overnight through the morning. There will be a break late morning into the afternoon, but slick spots on roadways is still a concern.
