Bitter cold Arctic air has arrived in the Miami Valley this morning, and has brought breezy conditions with it. Temps are in the mid-20s to kick off the day, and with winds moving along at 10-20 miles per hour, wind chills are in the teens, with some northern spots in the low teens and upper single digits. This will likely last through the day, but gradually die down as we get closer to Friday, where high pressure will slowly rebuild near us along the Ohio River. We'll see a mix of clouds and sun today, and more sunshine tomorrow, but high temps will not even reach the 30s until Saturday. Even then, we will not have a chance to rise above 32 degrees until later Sunday, but as that happens, a wintry mess will come along with the small warm up.
Low pressure will move over the Great Lakes, bringing a good deal of snow to Northern Ohio, Michigan, and along the southern lake shores. Here in the Miami Valley is where it gets tricky. We will be right on the border of the freezing line Sunday evening in the Dayton metro. Our northern cities will more likely see mostly snow, where south of I-70 could see rain mixing, limiting snow sticking to the ground. Monday will bring more of the same, becoming more snow later into Tuesday. Because the freezing line will be so close, this forecast will likely change a bit, so we're not issuing any accumulation forecasts at this time. However, the most likely spots to see snow on the ground by Tuesday will be north of I-70, especially north of US-36.
