Winter Storm Warning issued

A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for all area Counties except Clinton County, which is under a Winter Storm Watch on Sunday.

A Wind Chill Watch has been issued for all area Counties late Sunday into Tuesday.

Saturday overnight, a cold front will bring scattered light snow to locations mainly north and west by daybreak. Temperatures in the upper-20s to low-30s.

Sunday, light scattered snow to start, mainly north and west. Precipitation will spread south and east as the front slides into the area. Snow will become steadier and heavier across our northwestern counties during the afternoon and evening. Locations Oxford - Dayton -Springfield and southeast will see rain mixing with snow Sunday afternoon, with the possibility of all rain, before changing to all snow in the evening.

Temperatures will vary with location. Lower-30s northwest to mid-30s southeast. Blowing and drifting snow will be an issue Sunday night as wind increase behind the front. An arctic blast of cold air drops temperatures significantly by Monday morning with temps near zero by or before sunrise Monday. Wind chill values close to -20 by morning.

This means snow-covered or wet roadways will freeze and cause hazardous road conditions for the Monday morning commute.

Monday, icy roads expected with mostly cloudy, breezy and frigid conditions throughout the day.

A few scattered light snow showers are still possible with temperatures below zero and falling through Monday. Wind chill values could reach -30 in the afternoon, and close to -40 overnight. Temperatures this cold will not allow salt to melt anything left on the roads. Also, frostbite could occur in less than 10 minutes.

Tuesday, partly cloudy and frigid. A passing flurry is possible. Starting the day between -15 and -20 degrees. Highs near zero. Wind chill values near -40 in the morning and -20 in the afternoon.

Wednesday, more clouds arrive on Wednesday our next storm approaches. Scattered snow possible by Wednesday evening into early Thursday. Temperatures are expected to rise a bit on Thursday allowing rain to mix in with snow before ending.

River flooding records broken over weekend

The Great Miami River is flooding, and the level near Troy has already reached it's highest point in half a century.

That's one among several areas in Southwest Ohio and the Miami Valley affected by flooding and high waters.

The Great Miami near Troy was at 16.58 feet Sunday evening. The highest mark of 16.40 feet was recorded June 11, 1958.

Historic numbers, but the marks are not touching those recorded during the Great Flood of 1913, according to Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson.

The National Weather Service in Wilmington has extended Flood Warnings for several river systems from Celina in Mercer County to Kings Mills in Warren County.

Flood Warnings are in effect until 5:30 p.m. Sunday for Union and Wayne counties in Indiana, Auglaize, Champaign, Northwestern Clark, Darke, Logan, Mercer, Miami, Northern Montgomery, Preble and Shelby counties in Ohio.

Specific Flood Warnings for the Great Miami River are as follows:

  • Near Troy extends until Tuesday afternoon
  • In Sidney, Wednesday afternoon
  • At Taylorsville, Tuesday night
  • Miamisburg, Tuesday night
  • Middletown, Tuesday afternoon

A record high temperature for Dec. 21 was tied at Dayton on Saturday.

At 10:30 p.m. Saturday, the temperature at the Dayton international Airport reached 65 degrees, tying the record high temperature for this date set in 1967.

A second record was set for the daily maximum rainfall at Dayton, at. 2.46 inches. The old record was 1.55 inches, set in 1998.

Flood Watch issued for entire area Friday night

There is Flood Watch for the entire area which will go into effect late Friday night and last until Sunday morning.

Temperatures are in the 40s and much of the snow has melted into water. The ground is still frozen in most areas so the water will sit on top says Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson. There is still some uncertainty to where the heaviest rain will hit and when. Our area should still get at least 2" to 3" with possibly 4" by the time it ends. The forecast for river levels are to all have some flooding, starting as early as Saturday night, and perhaps persisting into Tuesday.

Tonight, cloudy and a bit breezy at times with showers arriving around 3 to 4 a.m. Temperatures should hold in the 40s all night with most waking up to lower-40s.

Friday, cloudy and a bit breezy still with off and on rain through the day, none of it expected to be heavy. Temperatures will rise into the mid-50s with perhaps a few upper-50s far south and lower-50s north. More rain at times Friday night.

Saturday, rain will be steadier through the day with the heavier rain likely arriving late afternoon or evening. Some of the computer forecast models actually push the heavy rain west of us overnight then swing it back through Sunday morning Simpson said. However, other keep it right over us all night. We'll just have to see how it plays out, but that's your difference between 2"-3" total or 4"-5" total. Temps might become fluxuating Saturday with a weather front right over the area. Highs will hit the 50s, but could be in the upper-40s far northwest in the afternoon, and the far southeast may get into the 60s. Possible thunder Saturday night. Streams and creeks will start to come out of their banks Saturday night.

Sunday, likely more heavy rain in the morning with a start in the 50s. The high temperature will be early in the mid-50s then fall throughout the day to about 40 or upper-30s at sunset. Rain should taper off about noon Sunday, and the larger rivers, including the Great Miami will flood Sunday as there will be a bit of a lag effect due to the smaller rivers feeding into the larger ones. The Mad and Little Miami River may be flooding early on already. Possible strong winds Sunday after the cold front passes the middle part of the day. There could be some gusts over 40 mph, and with all the rain, anything stronger could pull some trees out of the ground. As temperatures drop,a few snow showers Sunday night with little if any accumulation anywhere is possible.

Monday, wake up to temperatures in the 20s, Simpson says the water still sitting around could start to freeze. There may be a few flurries across the northern portion of the area, but shouldn't add up to anything. Some sunshine Monday, but temperatures should hold in the 20s all day.

Christmas Eve Tuesday, sunny but chilly with the chance of lingering flooding. Lows in the teens and high in the upper-20s.

Christmas Day Wednesday, partly cloudy with afternoon temps into the mid-30s after a start near 20 degrees.

Thursday, probably some snow showers, maybe light accumulation.
