MIAMI VALLEY (WKEF/WRGT) - Anyone will tell you, the winter weather's been odd.

"It's crazy!" Helen Newbold told FOX 45's Shavon Anderson.

With highs Monday and lows Tuesday , "I was just telling him, we're looking for a silver lining," said Kathi Rowzie, who was getting dinner at Austin Landing.

Kathi Rowzie and Carl Gagliardi just moved from Memphis, bracing for anything at this point.

"Some people say, 'Oh, this is really unusual. Then we've had other people say this is a normal winter for us!" Rowzie said.

There's another warm-up expected later this week, then possible snow storms this weekend, ODOT crews worked overnight Sunday, getting ahead of the Monday morning commute.

"Today, they've just been doing a lot of cleanup in different areas, trying to make sure the roads are as clear as possible," said District 7 Public Relations Officer, Mandi Dillon.

But, there's a huge dip in temperatures tonight that are troubling. Many spots around the Miami Valley haven't been completely cleared. On top of melted slush refreezing on sidewalks and side streets, frozen fog is an issue. That's when there's fog clouds hovering over the ground, they drop and the water freezes on contact. It creates a dangerous ice layer.

"In Montgomery County, we do have a night crew that works, so that crew will be in overnight in case there are spots that need treated again," Dillon said.

Helen Newbold's not a fan of the forecast.

"I don't like the back and forth weather," she said.

Gagliardi's got his own plan.

"Hand warmers, thermacare strips, space-aged material, anything we can get to get a lead on the weather," he said.
