The rain/freezing rain/sleet we have been dealing with all day continues to move off to our east. Snow will develop behind the rain/freezing rain/sleet. Some of this snow could be steady to heavy at times as well. Snow will continue into to the overnight before tapering off around 4 AM Sunday. Look at the millibars (black lines) on the map above. Look how they come close to each other. This is indicator that we will have to deal some gusty winds tonight.

Alright, snow totals continue to bounce back and forth. They have been on a slow decline because of all the rain we have seen today. Right now it looks like the highest snow accumulations may stay north of I-70. That is where we could see snow accumulations between 5 and 9 inches. I’m not really seeing that much snow accumulating south of Dayton. You can thank the rain for that.

Speaking of rain/freezing rain/sleet. Most ice accumulation will occur south of I-70. A lot of ice isn’t expected to accumulate for the rest of the day. We are looking at 0.01″ to around 0.10″ of more ice accumulation.
