    Event Ice storm

    Additional notes
    A late-season winter storm brought up to an inch of ice accumulation to northern portions of the Miami Valley on March 4, 2008, as Ohio voters went to the polls for the presidential primary.  Several hours of light freezing rain allowed significant ice accumulation north of I-70, while areas further south stayed above freezing and received little if any ice.

    Related NWS Products: Ice Storm Warning (for ice accumulation >1/4")

    Safety Note:  Ice accumulation on trees will cause branches to fall, which can lead to injury or death.  In addition, trees falling on power lines (and sometimes the weight of the ice alone) can cause hot lines to fall and lead to electrocution.  Always avoid large trees and power lines during an ice storm.  This is another reason not to be on the road during an ice storm.
