Miami Valley braces for first major snow of season

Local News

(WDTN) — The Miami Valley is bracing for the first significant snowfall of the season.

Storm Team 2 Chief Meteorologist Brian Davis says snow is expected to arrive Saturday morning, coming from a system developing to the southwest. The snow should begin after 6 a.m. Saturday. The snowfall will be steady through lunchtime, and through the afternoon.

Significant snow accumulation is expected, with three-to-five inches likely in most areas. That number could change with any shift in the storm’s track.

The highest snow totals are expected in the far southern Miami Valley in Butler, Warren and Clinton Counties, where four-to-six inches is possible.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the entire Miami Valley, with a Winter Storm Warning in effect for Butler, Warren and Clinton Counties.

Road conditions will be affected Saturday and Saturday night, due to steady snowfall.
 
Snow showers could persist until early Sunday, before the system moves out, leaving dry weather behind.
