Overnight: Steady, widespread rain is likely through the overnight hours. Areas north of U.S. 36 initially will deal with light icing due to surface temperatures below freezing. Motorists should be cautious of slippery conditions. Temperatures will rise through the night, and all precipitation transitions to rain. Some minor flooding is possible in spots by morning. Also, some patchy fog may contribute to reduced visibility.

“Drivers should watch for ponding on the road, as well as some areas of possible flooding along the Great Miami River,” Vrydaghs said.

Temperatures soar into the low 50s with gusty winds developing. Expect scattered downpours for the evening drive, and for rain to become snow at night. Winds pick up 35 to 45 mph and strong winds at night, with the saturated ground, could lead to some isolated power outages. Light snow accumulation is possible as well.
