It looks like the Miami Valley will have a white Christmas. A winter storm that hit most of the U.S. Thursday night and into Friday morning left the region covered in a layer of snow.
Thursday night rain showers turned to snow, resulting in slippery roads. A mixture of Level 1 and 2 snow emergencies were issued Friday morning in the Miami Valley as snow plows and crews attempted to clear roads. The weather also canceled and delayed numerous flights at the Dayton International Airport.
A few scattered snow showers are possible Friday afternoon, with fewer than an inch of snow expected.
Most of the Miami Valley have received at least 2 inches of snow as of early Friday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington. Some areas, such as Woodbourne-Hyde Park in Washington Twp., Montgomery County, received 4 inches of snow.
