A couple of storm systems will bring rain, snow, and colder temperatures to the Valley for the weekend. Our weather will be wet, snowy, and cold but impacts locally will be low.
Snow totals through the weekend look modest – on the order of a couple of inches. This amount won’t come all at once. It will be spread out over the three-day period so impacts to area travel should be minimal.
Rain showers will move into east-central Ohio this morning. Temperatures will initially be warm enough to support rain until a cold front passes late morning/early afternoon. Expect to see wet snow mixing in this afternoon before all precipitation changes over to snow this evening.
Light accumulation is possible but snow amounts will likely remain under an inch. Roads will likely remain wet during the daytime hours but slick spots and some accumulation may occur overnight.
Snow showers and squalls will remain possible Saturday and Sunday. Altogether we’re looking at a total accumulation of about 1″ to 3″ here in the Valley through Monday morning. Generally speaking, travel impacts look minimal but expect slick spots on the roads.
As always, be safe (and kind) out there.
