WPAFB Friday Weather: Not as cold, but snow arrives after dark

WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE — The good news is, temperatures will not be quite as low today as the last few days. The bad news is that snow will arrive after dark, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Eric Elwell said.

“While the snow will generally be light, accumulations of 1 to 2 inches will be likely with a chance for a few isolated 3-inch amounts,” he said.
