It’s official! Snow has developed in Northern Ohio and is headed for our region later tonight. In fact, a Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for much of the region from 4 AM until 10 PM Saturday.
Snow showers will enter the northern extents of our region right before dawn. Heavier snow showers will develop in the river cities in the later morning, and will start to push eastward by 1 PM (indicated by the dark blue shading). It will be a wet snow, as we see a strong southwesterly flow leading into the event. Then, we will see a lull in the snowfall for the early afternoon, before an arctic cold front approaches. With the FROPA (frontal passage), we will see convergence leading to possible snow squalls in the early evening. The models are showing more confidence in snowfall for the early evening, as can be seen below...
Winds will be strong throughout the day, with wind gusts pulling into the 30-40 MPH range. These strong winds combined with periods of heavy snowfall could lead to white out conditions in areas!
Take your time on the roads tomorrow, as slick conditions will be likely. Safe travels and a good evening everyone!
