Scattered snow showers will develop across eastern Ohio today as an upper-level disturbance travels across the Great Lakes region. Precipitation locally will be mainly snow but a few brief periods of a rain/snow mix can’t be completely ruled out. Accumulation across the Valley will be light and should not exceed one inch.
Snow may be heavy at times. These heavier snow bands could have an impact on your travels by reducing visibility. Gusty west winds today can also add to blowing snow to the equation. Snow showers will exit our area between 8:00 PM and 10:00 PM this evening.
Temperatures this afternoon will be similar to yesterday with afternoon highs in the mid-30s. High pressure will build over the region on Thursday. Dry and quiet weather should prevail for the remainder of the workweek.
HEADS UP – COLDER NEXT WEEK
After a slight warm-up during the first part of next week, temperatures will tumble by mid-week. Next Wednesday will be very cold, according to both the GFS and European models. I suspect these projections from the GFS might even be a little too warm.
