Temperatures will begin in the lower 20s by climb back into the lower 40s during the afternoon. Clouds will increase tonight as a storm system approaches from the southwest.
A wintry mix of freezing rain and sleet is expected to develop after 3 or 4 Saturday morning. This will lead to icy spots and perhaps a coating of ice on elevated surfaces to begin St. Patrick’s Day. Some snow may also mix in across the far northern Miami Valley.
