The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory covering the entire region until noon on Tuesday. The advisory includes several Ohio counties such as Auglaize, Butler, Champaign, Clark, Clinton, Darke, Greene, Logan, Mercer, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, Shelby, and Warren. Additionally, Randolph, Union, and Wayne counties in Indiana are also under the advisory until the same time.
According to Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Britley Ritz, there is a potential for slick conditions persisting into the morning despite the air temperature rising above freezing. This is due to the cold ground temperatures affecting untreated roadways and sidewalks. Conditions are expected to return to normal, albeit wet, by lunchtime, with temperatures reaching the mid-40s.
Looking ahead, Wednesday might bring more rain, but wintry weather is not anticipated, and highs are expected in the upper 40s. Thursday will likely be cloudy with another round of showers and very mild temperatures for the season, reaching the mid to upper 50s.
Friday’s forecast includes mostly cloudy skies and mainly dry conditions, with only a slight chance of showers and highs in the lower 50s. Saturday is expected to be cloudy and mostly dry during the day, with a chance for rain showers in the evening and night, and highs in the upper 40s.
Sunday carries a chance of rain in the morning, possibly mixed with snow showers at times, while daytime highs climb to the upper 40s. Monday is forecasted to be partly cloudy and slightly colder, with highs in the upper 30s. Stay tuned for further updates on the weather conditions.
