Pretty much another bland uneventful Sunday again for the Valley. A weak frontal boundary will be focused along Lake Erie for the bulk of the day will keep clouds over the east-central Ohio region. A mixed bag of rain and snow will remain along that boundary and south during the daylight hours. It will shift south tonight bringing precipitation along with it.
Look for a slight chance of rain before sunset this evening – especially those communities north of New Philadelphia. All areas in the Valley can expect rain showers by 10:00 PM. Light rain will mix with, then finally change over to light snow showers. We may end up with a dusting of snow but not much in the way of measurable accumulation.
MONDAY AND TUESDAY
The front we mentioned earlier will slowly drop south of the region and stall out there on Monday. We can expect snow showers to continue into Monday morning, changing over to rain and drizzle in the afternoon. Snow should be light for the morning commute and there shouldn’t be much if any impacts. We may end up with a half of an inch or less of new snow in most neighborhoods.
Any rain and drizzle in the afternoon will change back to light snow Monday night as temperatures cool off again.
Our frontal boundary shifts back north on Tuesday keeping the low threat for light snow in the morning and rain during the afternoon. It will remain mostly cloudy.
WEDNESDAY AND THANKSGIVING
Things will start to dry out and clouds will break some by Wednesday as our boundary shifts out of the picture and weak high pressure builds. Wednesday should stay dry with occasional peaks of sun.
Thursday will not be quite as warm as I originally expected. Another, more substantial cold front will sink through the region Wednesday night. With another burst of cold Canadian air, temperatures on Thanksgiving will be a chilly upper 30s for the afternoon high. At least it will be dry and mostly sunny.
BLACK FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND
If you’re heading out shopping on Friday you’ll have no weather worries. High pressure will provide abundant sunshine and temperatures will warm to the upper 40s.
Our next precipitation event moves in Friday night bringing good chances for rain and snow showers Friday night through Saturday.
