Low pressure will track across the Great Lakes region Thursday night and Friday. With the cold temperature regime we have in place, the system will likely spread snow showers across portions of the Great Lakes including northern Ohio. At this time, the models are pretty bullish on the potential for accumulating snow in northern Ohio on Friday.
Current projections bring decent odds for an inch or snow of slushy snow to areas mainly north of US-30 Thursday night into Friday morning. Snow showers in the morning will change over to rain at some point. Locally, snow is expected to be light here with the best odds for accumulating snow along and north of New Philadelphia.
Most, if not all accumulation locally will be on the grass and trees. Snow on area roads will likely melt quickly, especially after sunrise in the morning. I can’t imagine much of an impact other than wet roads here.
The forecast will likely vary some over the next 24 hours. I’ll keep you updated.
