Forecast post last updated by Devontae Jackson at 12:59 a.m. Thursday, Apr. 5, 2018. Rain will move into the area Friday evening. Late Friday night, rain will change over to snow. Snow will be light when it first start falling. Snow will continue to fall through Saturday morning picking up in intensity throughout the morning. Most snow looks like it will fall real early Saturday morning as well. Snow will then begin tapering off late Saturday morning. Snow should be finished falling by noon on Saturday.
With this system moving through the area Friday night into Saturday morning it does appear most of the county coverage area will pick up snow. At this time it appears that Darke and Miami counties won’t see that much snow. Some areas in these two counties could see possibly an inch of snow. Areas along and near I-70 have the possibility of 2 to 4 inches of snow. Areas Dayton, east, and south could see snow accumulations reach 4 plus inches. Models are predicting that some areas south of Dayton could see up to 6 inches of snow. The best chance for 6 inches of snow is down in parts of Butler, Clinton, and Warren counties. Please note this forecast could change.
