Sleet, snow and ice to ar­rive, caus­ing tricky driv­ing con­di­tions

Dayton Daily News - - FRONT PAGE - By Steve Ben­nish Staff Re­port

DAY­TON — A white Christ­mas Day is still on the way, but Mi­ami Val­ley res­i­dents will have to wade through some sleet and ice first.

A mix of snow with freez­ing rain or sleet is ex­pected be­fore 11 a.m. to­day. Ic­ing should be light, but mo­torists need to be mind­ful. New snow ac­cu­mu­la­tion of less than a half inch is pos­si­ble.

Tonight there’s a chance of snow and freez­ing driz­zle. Lows will be around 28.

Snow will be here on Christ­mas Day, said Jamie Simp­son, WHIOTV meteorolog­ist. “Maybe a cou­ple of inches, enough for Christ­mas to be white,” he said. Com­puter mod­els used by the Na­tional Weather Ser­vice sug­gest some ac­cu­mu­la­tion up to a few inches, but it’s too early to tell.
