Two to four inches of snow is possible in the northern counties.
According to Storm Team 2 Chief Meteorologist Brian Davis, a brief wintry mix was expected to continue through the night and quickly change over to rain. As the system spreads north of I-70, it remained a mix or fell as primarily snow or sleet. The entire area changed back to rain before going back to snow, with 2-inches to 4-inches possible in the northern counties and 1-inch to 2-inches in the Dayton areas.
Thursday will get colder and we’ll see temperature staying in the low to the middle 30s.
Brian Davis said there is potential for some slick roads especially north Wednesday night and snowfall will likely be heaviest mainly in Mercer, Auglaize, Shelby and Logan counties.
Temperatures will drop close to 30 Wednesday night and we’ll see high temperatures tomorrow only make it up into the 30s. It will be much colder Friday morning with overnight low temperatures in the teens and even single digits in some areas.
