Special Weather Statement NWS Wilmington OH Ripley & Franklin Counties. Strong storm impacting the Ohio Valley

A strong low pressure system will lift northeast across the region
this evening. On the backside of the low, an arctic airmass will
spread into the Ohio Valley overnight. As temperatures fall, rain
will change over to snow from the northwest through this evening.
Periods of heavy snow will be possible. It will also become very
windy tonight with northwest winds of 20 to 30 mph and wind gusts
up to 45 mph across the entire area. This will lead to near
blizzard conditions, with visibilities to near zero at times,
late this evening into the overnight period.
Travel conditions, especially near and northwest of the I-71
corridor, will quickly deteriorate later this evening, becoming
hazardous and potentially dangerous. Flash freezing will be
possible on some roads, with blowing and drifting snow causing
brief whiteout conditions late this evening through the early
overnight period. The wind and snow will also likely cause some
falling trees limbs and possible power outages.
Snow is expected to diminish in coverage and intensity toward
daybreak Sunday. Wind chills will fall into the zero to 10 below
range late tonight into Sunday morning.
Try to avoid going outdoors late this evening through early
Sunday morning due to bitterly cold temperatures and hazardous
road conditions.
