Today: Sunshine today will help melt the snow and warm road temperatures, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini. 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.
