(WKEF/WRGT) - As more winter weather makes its way toward the area, a Winter Storm Warning has been issued for parts of the Miami Valley.
The warning begins at 4 a.m. Saturday, continuing through Sunday at 4 a.m.
Snow will begin falling Saturday morning and some areas will receive ice. Northern parts of the Miami Valley could receive between 6 and 10 inches of snow, while areas in the Dayton metro and in the southern portion of the area could receive between 4 to 6 inches.
After the snow falls, the deep freeze will settle in with windy conditions and blowing snow on Sunday. Conditions could be blustery, meaning potential power outages. The spokeswoman for Dayton Power & Light said it crews are prepared for the storm and will be on call throughout. DPP&L reminds customers to put together a storm kit in the event of a power outage that includes items like flashlights, non-perishable foods and to have their phones fully charged.
If a power line does come down near you, you should not go near it, instead give DPP&L a call. You can also keep an eye on the utility's website and outage map online.
Communities are also preparing for the potential that outages could become problematic. Washington Township has created a website with information on warming centers and emergency preparation, which you can check out here.
By Tuesday, temperatures are expected to rise.
