Very Cold Weather And Snow This Weekend!

We had the coldest weather we have seen in over a year here overnight last night with a low of 4 degrees here in Lima, and technically, we don’t begin the Winter season until December 21st! Our coldest low last Winter was on January 22nd at 5 degrees. Along with the recent chilly weather, we have seen snow in the region as well with the potential for our biggest snow yet as we head into the upcoming weekend.

All week-long, forecast models have been pretty consistent in showing the potential for several inches of snow beginning late Friday and lasting through the beginning of the weekend on Saturday. Our Futurecast model shows light snow beginning to move in by 10 or 11 PM Friday evening….

Fri Night Snow

The snow will fall thanks to an area of low pressure drawing up some moisture from the Gulf that will interact with very cold air and a cold front moving in out of the North.

Light to moderate snow is expected to continue into Saturday with accumulations ranging into the 3-5 inch range by late Saturday evening.

Most models, including this one (RPM) have been showing 3 to 5 inches of snow accumulating late Friday night through Saturday evening.

As of now, I feel pretty comfortable saying that we’ll see 3 to 5 inches of fresh snow on the ground by the end of Saturday. But as is the case with almost all Winter Storms, a slight change in the track could cause this range to jump an inch or two up or down in the next 24 hours. Stay tuned! I will keep watching the trends in the models over the next 24 hours and will keep you updated as the storm develops! Join me tonight at 10 and 11 with all the latest on Your Hometown Stations!
