Overnight: It will dry out overnight and turn cold with temperatures falling into the lower 30s, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs said. It will be breezy with wind chills dipping into the teens and 20s. Watch out for a few isolated slick spots as temperatures drop.

Tuesday: Some isolated slick spots are possible due to refreeze from the overnight wet roads. There is a slight chance for a stray flurry in areas north of Dayton early in the day. Otherwise, it will be a cloudy, windy and cold day. Temperatures start in the lower 30s and will fall through the afternoon. Breezy conditions continue with wind chills in the 20s all day long. Winds will diminish overnight and skies will clear with a cold night expected as lows drop to around 20 degrees.
