SATURDAY: Rain showers are expected to start the day, but as colder air continues to filter in, we expect this rain to change over to snow late morning and into the afternoon. We should dry out as we head into the evening. The snow will accumulate with areas south of Interstate 70 getting around 1 inch. North of I-70 1 to 2 inches of snow is expected. Temperatures will fall through the 30s.

CHRISTMAS EVE: Mostly cloudy skies, breezy and cold with highs around 30 degrees for Christmas Eve. We might see a few flurries in the morning, but a better chance for light scattered snow showers will arrive in the afternoon and evening. The round of snow in the afternoon has the greatest potential to leave accumulating snow. An inch of snow is expected for areas south of I-70 and around two inches are expected in northern counties. A few isolated locations far north could see a bit more, especially if bands of heavier snow develop. Roads will likely become slick while the snow falls and after it ends as temperatures stay below freezing. Overnight lows into Christmas will drop into the teens with wind chills in the single digits by morning.

CHRISTMAS DAY: A very cold morning with temperatures starting in the teens and wind chills in the single digits. There is a good possibility that the Miami Valley will wake up to a White Christmas due to snowfall from the night before, but no additional snow is expected for the day. While traveling anywhere in the Miami Valley, be sure to watch for icy patches. Temperatures are only expected to reach the upper 20s for a high, nearly 10 degrees below normal.
