5-day forecast with Meteorologist Rich Wirdzek

Packed snow means colder night, more refreeze

Temperatures falling through the teens mean refreeze will present issues on the roads tonight and into the morning, Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Rich Wirdzek said Monday night.

Side streets in neighborhoods in Dayton and throughout the region remained slick and hazardous Monday night as the snow that fell during the day froze.

Patches of ice and snow, as well as possible alcohol use, is being blamed for a single-vehicle crash in Union County on Monday night.

A 59-year-old Marysville woman was badly injured when the Nissan station wagon she was driving crashed and came to rest on its top on U.S. 36 west, near Myers Road and just east of New Dover in Union County, said Trooper John Moore with the Marysville post.

The woman, whose name was not available, was taken to a hospital in Marysville and transfered to Grant Medical Center in Columbus from the accident that occurred about 9 p.m., Moore said. Whether the woman will be cited remains under investigation.

Wirdzek said back roads especially will remain very icy as temps will be held down by scattered clouds and snowpack. Lows near 10 with some spots north (Darke, Mercer and Shelby counties) dipping into single digits.

Tuesday: Clouds and snow showers will develop west of the Dayton area and into Indiana. Most snow activity, derived off Lake Michigan, will stay in that area because of how the winds will be setting up. A few flurries may stray east into our area. No accumulation is expected. Highs in the mid-20s.

Wednesday: Clouds and some sun. Not as cold, with a slight south breeze. Highs in the mid-30s.

Thursday: A disturbance will bring light rain during the day, a scenario similar to last Sunday. Cold air will work into the area north to south late afternoon and evening, changing rain to snow before ending late.

A small accumulation is possible, leaving roads tricky for the Friday morning commute. Highs near 40 early, falling into the 30s and 20s late. In the Butler and Warren region, snow accumulations will be minimal at most late in the day.

Friday: Sun and some clouds. Highs near freezing.

Saturday: Increasing clouds. Highs near freezing.
