Winter storm warnings have been issued for much of West Central Ohio that will go into effect overnight tonight and lat through Saturday evening.
This storm is currently off to our South and West and is developing thanks to an area of low pressure that is pulling up a good deal of moisture out of the South. This moisture will interact with a cold front drapped across the region tonight and tomorrow.
Expect snow to begin moving into West Central Ohio by about 10 or 11 PM this evening as all this moisture continues its way Northeast with steady snow expected in the region to start the day on Saturday.
Steady snow will continue to fall into Saturday afternoon with the rain/snow line expected to remain well to our South. It’s looking like all snow with this storm and no mix expected.
Tonight through Saturday evening is the time when we’ll see the snow accumulate through West Central Ohio. Here is a look at what I’m thinking as far as accumulations are concerned.
The 5 to 8 inch swath of snowfall may need to be adjusted a little bit further South as the night progresses, but for now it looks as if it will remain just North of Lima. I’ll be watching all the latest computer model forecasts all evening long and be sure to keep you updated throughout the evening and on Your News Now at 10 and 11! Stay safe!
