DETAILED FORECAST

Overnight: It will be mostly cloudy and cold with lows in the middle 20s, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs said.

Saturday: Outside of a chance for a passing flurry, it will be partly sunny and chilly during the day. Highs will reach the lower 40s. Clouds increase Saturday night ahead of the winter storm that moves in Sunday. A few light snow showers will be possible overnight with lows dropping into the upper 20s.

Sunday: A storm system will pass to the south, bringing scattered snow showers. As temperatures climb in the afternoon, some rain may mix with snow south of Interstate 70 before transitioning to snow. Snow totals will range between 2 and 4 inches with some lesser amounts in areas north of Dayton.

“The bulk of the snow will fall during the daytime hours, and with temperatures above freezing, road conditions should be in decent shape,” Vrydaghs said.

“After sunset road conditions will become slick, but the snow will already have begun to taper off.”

A few flurries or an isolated snow shower may linger into the evening. Highs will reach the lower 30s in the afternoon, then quickly drop into the 20s after sunset. Refreeze will be a problem overnight.

Monday: Some flurries are possible in the morning, but otherwise, it will be a cold start to the day with wind chills in the single digits. Clouds will break for some afternoon sunshine with highs only reaching the lower 20s.

Tuesday: A very cold morning with wind chills below zero. Highs will only reach around 20 degrees under partly sunny skies.

Wednesday: Wind chills will once again start below zero in the morning. Skies will be mostly sunny during the day with highs in the middle 20s.
