Everyday weather for the Tuscarawas Valley region...


Next clipper brings accumulating snow for Friday/Saturday

Wind Chill Advisory in effect for Tuscarawas County from 7:00 PM this evening through 10:00 AM Friday for wind chills as low as -15 degrees. Next system arriving Friday night will bring 1 to 3 inches of snow and dangerous wind chills. Advisories are likely.

Good morning! There is lots to cover this morning so I’ll just dive right in….

A little snow overnight and less than I originally thought yesterday. This clipper turned out to be unusually dry system and most of the upper level moisture has already moved off to our east. We could see some light flurries now and then this morning but nothing that will amount to much – less than a half inch.

The dry air is also working to keep temperatures relatively steady and this looks to continue through the afternoon. The temp now in New Phila is 10 degrees and we should stay at that temp until late afternoon. Then, we start getting colder.

With the west wind around 10 MPH, wind chills will hover around -5 to -10 out there today.

A wind chill advisory will go into effect for Tuscarawas, Carroll, Columbiana, Coshocton, Guernsey, Harrison, Jefferson, Muskingum, and Noble counties at 7:00 PM and continue through Friday morning for wind chills -10 to -15 overnight tonight and early Friday morning. I would expect a similar advisory will be issued for Stark, Wayne, and Holmes counties by Cleveland NWS sometime today.

Saturday snow probabilitiesOur next snow event will arrive Friday night into Saturday with a much stronger cold front. Again, this system appears to be lacking a lot of moisture, but the very cold temperatures will allow for high snow ratios. As of this morning, expect a 1 to 3 snow with this one, but after I look at this afternoon’s data, I may need raise that to a 2 to 4 inch snow accumulation.

Another factor that will be different with this next system will be the wind and colder temps. Wind chills will be brutal Friday night/Saturday and I do expect to see advisories issued for wind chill and snow.

Yet another clipper moves through Sunday. This one has less moisture to work with but it may still bring another inch or two to the Valley. Again, while not a lot of moisture, the snow ratios will be higher with this one.

Then, a major blast of arctic air will arrive early next week. This one will bring temperatures similar to those we saw two weeks ago with the infamous polar vortex. Computer models are telling us to expect low temperatures Monday night through Wednesday night in the -10 degree range with wind chills of -35.

I would plan on numerous event cancellations and postponements and schools will probably be closed most of next week. You may want to make preparations to your home and vehicle this week and have a backup plan. This cold snap will last 48 to 72 hours – much longer than the last one.

Next Tuesday wind chills

One computer model’s idea of wind chills for next Tuesday. While this is just one example, other models have similar ideas on the extreme cold for next week.
