Hamilton, Middletown, Oxford in direct path of Saturday winter storm

Hamilton, Middletown, Oxford and the rest of Butler County are in the direct path of Saturday’s expected winter storm, but a slight shift could blast the snow elsewhere.

“Here’s the bottom line: It’s an intense system and someone is going to see a lot of snow, we just don’t know where it’s going yet,” said Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Eric Elwell. “Right now, it looks like either Dayton or Cincinnati will get nailed.”

“It’s very possible that Cincinnati could get 6-plus inches of snow, and Dayton gets an inch or less. That’s how sharp we expect it to be,” Elwell said.

“We believe between Dayton and Cincinnati will see a lot of snow,” Elwell said. “But any small deviation in the track will play a huge role in who see’s what.”
