Friday Afternoon Update: A little snow tonight

Rain chances this afternoon will decrease as a storm system continues to move off to the northeast. A spotty light shower or drizzle will certainly be possible. And, we’ll keep the gloomy clouds this evening. Temperatures will also take a slow downward trend through the rest of the afternoon. We will end up at around 38° by sunset.

Snow showers will be possible after midnight. I wouldn’t expect this to amount to much. There may some light wet snow accumulation but it shouldn’t amount to more than a half inch. Light snow will linger through Saturday morning over east-central Ohio but those will taper off and end by lunchtime. It will be breezy so those afternoon temperatures in the 34° range will feel more like the mid-20s.

FutureCast Radar through 7:00 AM Saturday. While exact placement of snow showers at any given time will most likely not be exact, this animation does show the possibility for light snow showers at times tonight.

It will also turn breezy tonight as winds out of the west pick up 10 to 15 mph. Some gusts could reach 20 to 25 mph at times tonight and Saturday.

We can expect a brief period of dry weather Saturday night into Sunday morning but a cold front will cross in the afternoon. Again, we may see a brief period of wet snow before precipitation changes over to rain in the afternoon. Afternoon highs on Sunday should reach the upper 30s across the Valley.

Still not seeing much of a promise for snow Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Both days look dry with occasional sun.
