Slightly warmer air enters the region with a strong flow from the south. This is happening ahead of a fairly major front-end complex moving across the state tomorrow and Thursday. Tomorrow still seems to be a day with less coverage, but the biggest showers arrive overnight through Thursday at noon. The showers are gearing up to end as sloppy, wet snowflakes Thursday afternoon, but we don’t think we’ll see significant accumulations anywhere except lake-effect areas. We’ll take another look tomorrow to see if that thinking changes. The air coming in behind the front is dramatically cooler.
Clouds and some sun Friday through the weekend. We have a decent chance of light snow and flurries Friday afternoon and evening through Saturday. We may see some minor accumulations north of US 30. Sunday should be partly sunny.
The clouds return for next Monday with scattered snow showers. We have potential for some buildups, but for now we will postpone official estimates. Available liquid equivalents appear to be 0.1″ to 0.5″ with 70% Ohio coverage.
Precipitation mostly occurs during the remainder of the week after Monday’s event shifts to the east. A cold air booster is on the way for the rest of the week. Well below normal temperatures are expected and that fuels the potential for intermittent gusts Tuesday afternoon into Friday, but nothing noticeable enough to trigger thoughts of accumulations.
