>>Watch issued for winter storm warning, Miami Valley.What to expect from Holiday Storm
this morning: Snow continues to fall across the Miami Valley. This snow, combined with 30-50 mph gusts, can reduce visibility to a quarter of a mile. The road is covered with snow and slippery. Storm Center 7 Austin Cheney says the snow will clear before or around dawn, but the gusts will continue throughout the day.
today: The snow is gone, but the cloudy sky remains. The main problems on Friday will be gusty winds and very low temperatures.
Winds can reach 40 to 50 mph during the day.
This causes overnight powder snow to be blown onto the roads as crews attempt to push the snow back onto the roads overnight leading to snowy roads and dangerous travel. Blizzards also occur from time to time. The wind also creates dangerous cold weather. The maximum temperature he rises only to 2 degrees, and the wind chill stays in the range of -20 to -30 degrees all day. This can lead to frostbite within 30 minutes. Limit your time outside today.
Saturday: Very cold with dangerous wind chill, but a dry day. Highs reach only single digits. Wind chill lasts from -10 to -25. The road remains slippery in places. Mostly cloudy skies are expected.
Sunday: One of the coldest Christmas days on record.
We woke up around 5am and the high is only 14 degrees. Morning wind chill still ranges from -10 to -20. At least we stay dry when the sunshine returns.
Monday: Scattered clouds. I’m in my mid 20’s and it’s getting cold again. A flurry of snow is possible Monday afternoon due to weather disruptions. Precipitation appears to be light at this point, but the fallen snow remains due to the cooler temperatures.
Tuesday: It’s still cold. The sun and clouds mix together, with highs in the high 20s.
Wednesday: Partly cloudy and chilly. A warming trend begins. Mid 30’s is best.
Thursday: Sunny, cloudy, mild days with highs in the mid-40s.
