A quick update on what we can expect weather-wise in the Valley today and tomorrow…
Snow showers so far this morning are generally playing out as expected. Snow will continue for a few hours yet before warmer air begins to push into the system from the south. Snow will gradually change to rain south to north late this morning or early this afternoon. There can be a brief period where we see some sleet, or perhaps even some freezing rain, mixing in for a time during the transition period.
Temperatures across the Valley should reach the mid-40s and all locations will see rain this afternoon. Expect the wind to pick up this afternoon as well. The rain and warmer temperatures this afternoon will eventually melt the morning snow. Travel conditions will greatly improve as roads locally become just all wet. Your drive home will be much better late this afternoon and evening than it was this morning.
TONIGHT AND THURSDAY
Scattered light rain showers will continue tonight but eventually, temperatures are going to cool down again after midnight/2:00 AM. Any light rain will gradually change back to snow as we approach sunrise Thursday. Scattered snow showers will then be around during the daytime hours tomorrow.
As it is with most snow events it’s pretty tough nailing down where and when snowfall will occur as scattered bands of snow move through an area. Generally, we can expect to see an inch or two of fresh snow as these areas of snow move through during the day.
The exception will be Thursday afternoon when temperatures warm into the mid-30s and bring chances for another round of mixed wintry precipitation.
An upper-level disturbance slides northeast to southwest through eastern Ohio. This will likely cause an uptick in snow showers for a while Thursday evening/night.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND
So far I’m somewhat confident that Friday stays dry. The next system moves west to east through Ohio on Saturday and this could bring another round of accumulating snow to the Valley for the weekend.
