Cloudy skies are seen over a large part of the state today, and we are still dealing with some lingering shower action this morning in northeast and eastern parts of the state. Sloppy wet snowflakes will be seen in spots, particularly in NE OH, influenced by the lake. Clouds can break later today, especially over southern and western parts of the state. Colder air will filter in to our area through the day.
Tomorrow clouds will be on the increase, especially midday and afternoon. We may get lucky and be able to start the day with some sun. Scattered showers develop tomorrow evening and overnight in the north (particularly NW) and spread south and east through the day Saturday. These rains can end as some lake effect snow Sunday morning in Northeast OH, and even a few wet snowflakes farther south. Warmer air comes in with the most intense rains through the day Saturday, and we wont rule out a thunderstorm in spots, although the best chances stay farther west. Combined we see rain totals of .25”-1” with 100% coverage over the state. There is an outside chance of some rain totals over 1”, but those will be highly localized.
Colder for the balance of Sunday with clouds giving way to some late day sun. Then we look to be dry for the rest of the week as well, Monday through the following Saturday. However, temperatures for this dry period are going yo-yo back and forth a good little bit. We stay reletively cold on Monday, then see moderating temps Tuesday. A strong canadian high dives in for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, taking temps back below normal again, before we moderate for next Saturday. So, it will be a rollercoaster ride, even though we expect some good sun through the period.
In the extended period, we see a nice front pushing in for Sunday the 26th. The heart of this system will pass by to the south, but we see some moisture able to surge north into the state, perhaps all the way up to I-70. This can bring .1”-.5” with coverage at 60%. Then we are dry for the 27th through the 30th. We have another cold front lining up for December 1st, but precipitation totals do not look too impressive at this time, perhaps a .25” or less. However, precipitation could be either rain or wet snow. Stay tuned.
