FIRST REPORT

After an active morning of thunderstorms which produced heavy rain, frequent lightning and possibly some small sized hail, the Miami Valley will need to gear up for another threat of strong storms. 

A boundary draped across the southern Miami Valley will help be a catalyst for storms to redevelop.

RELATED: Severe Weather: Slight vs Enhanced Risk

Some late morning and early afternoon sun will help to re-energize the atmosphere and with dew points in the 60s today, the warm and moist environment will help to fuel more storms. 

RELATED:  LIVE Interactive Radar

Areas along Interstate 70 and south have been placed under a "slight risk" for severe storms with areas north in a "marginal" risk. 

5 Day Forecast with Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs

Your Storm Center 7 Teams believes the best ingredients will likely live under the counties in the slight risk. 

Storms should start firing between 1 and 3 p.m. and become scattered across the Miami Valley for the evening commute. 

Storms will likely be slow-movers which means the potential for heavy downpours repeatedly over the same city could cause ponding on the roads. 

The main severe threat will come from damaging winds and larger sized hail. 

If you are driving, or biking home since it is #BiketoWorkDay, make sure to check your WHIO Weather App. You can set up lightning detection, get any watches and warnings and check out the live stream of our latest newscasts. 

Your Storm Center 7 Team will monitor conditions through the day to bring you updates on-air, online and on AM 1290 and News 95.7 WHIO.

Published: Tuesday, January 16, 2018 @ 12:40 AM

WRIGHT PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE—A bitter cold start to the day is expected with a Wind Chill Advisory in effect all the way through early afternoon, according to Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Eric Elwell.

RELATED: Winter in full swing: Another cold blast sends temps to well below freezing

More snow expected this afternoon will add to snow totals

Updated: Monday, January 15, 2018 @ 10:28 AM

Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini looks at how much snow we could see and how it will impact the roads today.

The next round of snow arrived today and is expected to drop another 2 inches across most of the region.

>> WHIO Doppler 7 HD Interactive Radar

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. 

>> Winter Weather Advisory issued; 2 inches of snow likely Monday

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.

The second band of snow is expected to affect the evening commute.

Winter weather season in full swing and expected to impact evening commute

“Winds pick up, gusting at 20 to 30 mph out of the south. This will impact those driving east and west today, especially high profile vehicles”, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini. 

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect through 9 p.m. when snow should end. Roads could stay snowy with temperatures dropping into the single digits. 

WPAFB Monday Weather: Snow expected, areas to receive around two inches

Published: Monday, January 15, 2018 @ 12:36 AM

WRIGHT PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE— Snow is expected through the day today with some possibly being heavy at times, according to Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Brett Collar.

RELATED: Timing of next round of snow

Both the morning and evening commutes will likely be impacted by this snow. Extra time and caution will be needed if you have plans to be out on the road. The snow looks to wrap up around sunset, and by that time it looks like most areas will receive around 2 inches of new snow, but some spots could see upwards of 3 inches. Temperatures on Monday will top out in the upper 20s.
