Things haven’t changed much since yesterday’s forecast. A cold front will advance southeastward through east-central Ohio today bringing the chances for occasional rain showers and gusty wind. A lake-enhanced snow event will set up later this evening as temperatures quickly cool behind the front. While impactful snow accumulation is not expected here in the Valley, most locations will probably see at least a few snowflakes tonight.
Temperatures for the day will be warmest in the morning ahead of the front then drop off to the mid-30s around sunset. It will cool off to around 30° by sunrise Monday.
We will also see some gusty wind today. Gusts out of the west could reach the 30 mph range at times. The winds will shift out of the northwest behind the front as the cold air pushes in this afternoon and evening. That will set up the lake enhanced snow this evening as cold air flows over the western Great Lakes.
As it always is, the more favorable conditions for impactful snowfall will occur downwind of the lakes. Northeastern Ohio counties may see measurable snow. There can be the occasional snow band reach this far southeast, though. These are difficult to forecast with any accuracy so we just have to allow for the potential of an occasional burst of snow in the forecast.
TIMING OF THE SNOW
Any rain will more likely change over to mixed precipitation after 3-4 PM this afternoon as temperatures aloft cool.
The farther south your community is, the less of a chance you’ll see any snow tonight. Northern and eastern neighborhoods will be the best candidates to see any snowfall later today. Little to no accumulation is anticipated locally.
Odds for snow showers locally will taper off tonight and end by Monday morning. Skies should begin clearing by the afternoon but temperatures will remain chilly with highs only reaching the mid-40s. A breezy west wind will make it feel like the mid-30s, though.
THE REST OF THE WORK WEEK
Temperatures will gradually warm through the week with afternoon highs reaching the low-60s by Wednesday. High pressure will make for some beautiful late fall weather here with plenty of sunshine.
Next weekend looks fantastic with sunshine and temperatures in the upper-60s. Indian Summer for sure.
