Heads Up: Widespread snow showers Monday night will affect your Tuesday morning commute

SUNDAY MORNING | I just want to take a few minutes this morning to give everyone a heads up for the next round of snow headed our way for Monday night into Tuesday morning. This system looks to bring a more widespread snow event to east-central Ohio and some heavier accumulations than those we saw Saturday night.

While Monday should generally be a quiet day widespread snow showers will begin to move into the region late Monday night. Here is one model’s (NAM) of what the radar may look like at 3:00 am Tuesday morning:

MONDAY NIGHT: Snow and snow squalls will reduce visibility.

Although there are some adjustment that will need to be made as later modeling updates today, it does look that widespread snow showers will continue into Tuesday morning and will probably have an impact on the morning commute – TUESDAY MORNING.

This does not look like a system that will bring a lot of snow to the Valley – I think generally an inch or two – but the timing will have impacts Tuesday morning. Depending on exactly where the heaviest snow bands set up may prompt Winter Weather Advisories from NWS.

Impacts on your morning commute will be greater as you head north into Columbiana, Stark and Wayne counties. Those who are travelling south to work will find less snow and better travel conditions.

As the system makes its way east Tuesday afternoon it will transition over to a more lake effect snow storm. We should see little if any effects as winds shift more westerly during the day Tuesday.

Temperatrues on Monday will be a bit warmer ahead of this next front, but they won’t last long. Much colder air will rush in behind the front Tuesday and bring us the coldest temperatures of the season. Wednesday’s HIGH will be in the mid 20s!

NOTE: This is not a final forecast on this system. I provide this only as early information. Snow coverage will likely change over the coming 24 hours as computer models get a better handle on the track and intensity of the parent low pressure system.
