A Winter Storm Watch is in effect from 4 a.m. Saturday through 11 a.m. Sunday for Butler, Warren and Clinton counties.

Saturday: Snow showers likely throughout the day. Temperatures for the day will rise to the lower 30s. As the storm moves closer during the afternoon, some warmer air to the south may infiltrate the snow and perhaps try to mix some rain in far south. At this point the storm looks to remain mainly snow, but it will be something to watch over the next 24 to 48 hours. Some scattered snow showers still possible into Saturday night, but will begin to taper from the northwest. The storm track and snowfall amounts are still being finalized, but early snowfall estimates are 1 to 2 inches north of Dayton with 2 to 4 inches south with some isolated higher amounts closer to Butler, Warren and Clinton counties.
