TODAY: A wind advisory will continue across the Miami Valley until 1am Thursday as wind gust will peek close to 50mph at time. Temperatures will be falling back through the day until eventually dipping into the lower 30s by tomorrow morning. Winds relax by then, but a light breeze will result in wind chills in the upper teens to low 20s. There will be enough of a breeze during this time frame to help dry the roads and keep from any slick spots developing for the morning drive. As the colder air rushes in during the day, a few passing rain showers will develop then change to light flurries later tonight before ending.
