Here we go again! West Central Ohio is in line for another Winter Storm which will take aim at the region Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning. In anticipation of this, The National Weather Service has already started issuing Winter Storm Warnings that will go into effect tomorrow afternoon. By Wednesday, I anticipate all of our counties to be under a Winter Storm Warning. PLEASE NOTE, these warnings do not go into effect until tomorrow afternoon.
Most of the day Tuesday will actually be pretty quiet here in West Central Ohio. But while we will just see a general increase in clouds, miles and miles off to our Southwest our Winter Storm will be taking shape.
As of now it is looking as if snow from this system will begin to move in around 6 or 7ish tomorrow evening with just light snow at first. Notice where the pink line is indicating a rain/snow mix.
After midnight is when the heaviest snow will fall here in West Central Ohio. I’ll be keeping a VERY close eye on where the rain/snow line (the thin pink line) sets up because if that creeps up into West Central Ohio that would limit our snowfall totals a bit.
By sunrise Wednesday morning the snow will begin to taper off with on/off snow expected to fall through the early afternoon hours on Wednesday.
By Wednesday around noon here are my expected snowfall totals here in West Central Ohio. PLEASE NOTE, this forecast could still be tweaked a bit depending on any shifts in the storm’s path over the next 24 hours!
To break it all down even further. You may remember how the rain/snow line impacted snow totals across the region with the last big snow storm (read here). While I don’t think that caliber of warmer air will work in with this particular storm, that is always something I watch that can limit overall snow totals.
I’ll have all the latest tonight at 10 and 11 on Your Hometown Stations, this storm is still developing, so stay tuned!
