Another winter storm is set to move into Butler County this weekend after last week’s heavy snowfall.
Impactful winter weather is expected Saturday and Sunday. There are a few differences between this weekend and last.
• The track is a little different, so areas could be impacted in different ways
• Much colder air will move in behind it
• Winds will be stronger gusting 30-40 mph Saturday night
• Ice and refreeze will be a higher issue
Butler Warren and Clinton counties have the potential for part of the afternoon to see snow to start then a mix of freezing rain/sleet then eventually some afternoon rain. This could allow for a tenth of an inch of ice to accumulate during the day.
Towards the evening, mainly after 6 p.m., a quick change back to snow will allow for a quick round of accumulation likely between 2-4 inches.
Road conditions will deteriorate quickly through the evening hours. Snow will be able to stick quickly and as temperatures quickly drop into the teens overnight with cold gusty winds, there could be refreeze that leads to very icy and snow-covered roads.
Saturday afternoon will be spent in the 30s with temperatures dropping into the teens by Sunday morning. The wind will bring wind chills below zero all day Sunday.
