Snow and Ice due in Town for Weekend

Area on Winter Storm Notice

It’s been one of those weeks as a super hard case of bronchitis has knocked me for a loop. But I am getting my old feistiness back, which means I am on the mend and ready to blog up a storm.

Briefly, the combination of a chilling NE wind and an approaching southern storm promises a potpourri of nasty winter weather this weekend. For most, a rainy Friday will turn cold enough late at night for rain to turn to sleet and ice. The prospect of a thin coat of ice by Saturday morning is high across much of the region.

A Saturday snowfall should follow with a general accumulation of one to high end three inches to accumulate. That means I expect more ones than threes in the I-64 and south corridor!

Since 5”-10” will accumulate from Louisville to Cincinnati to Columbus to Cleveland, and the famous Southern Ohio Ice Belt should measure a general 3”-5” (Vanceburg, Portsmouth, Wellston, McArthur included), snow lovers would say “we have missed out again”.

To that I say let’s just take what comes our way and be happy that if your cabin fever reaches a boil this weekend (my temperature peaked at 102.3 F), you have the WSAZ Home and Garden Show to get you dreaming of true spring which is still 2 weeks away!
