This is a quick update for our regular readers regarding the weekend winter storm system mentioned in yesterday’s blog:
New computer model guidance coming in for Thursday afternoon tracks the weekend storm system I mentioned in yesterday’s blog farther south. What that essentially means is that odds for wintry precipitation here in east-central Ohio Saturday and Saturday night is even less likely.
While we will likely end up with cloudier sky with occasional sunshine on Saturday but any precipitation from this system should stay south of I-70. Portions of southwest Ohio will end up with a good thump of snow from this storm.
In response, the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for those southeast Ohio counties affected.
We will continue to monitor the latest model data over the coming days for any shifts to the north this system may take. So far, though, none of the major computer models track this system north and into east-central Ohio on Saturday.
