Repeat snow, ice predicted



By Dan Klepal

Rain to ice to snow, then press repeat.

The afternoon drizzle turned to freezing rain late Friday, causing a handful of fender-benders, including an accident on Interstate 275 near Ohio 747 that backed up traffic for more than a mile. A winter weather advisory was in effect for the freezing rain and snowfall.

Meteorologists at the National Weather Service said they were expecting only about an inch of snow accumulation overnight Friday, but warned that it could become 2 or 3 inches early this morning.

Ditto on Sunday.

"The models keep changing," meteorologist Scott Hickman said. "Then another low is developing just south of our area (today), and that could bring more snow late (today) and Sunday.

Oxford Talawanda and New Miami schools in Butler County let out early so students could beat the bad weather home.
