Mixed clouds and sun for your Wednesday and we should see dry weather statewide. However, a frontal complex is headed toward the region. Colder air will push in from the north, while moisture lifts up from the south. The result will be chances for light rain or snow showers in Ohio tomorrow. The majority of the state will have potential for snow, but far southern Ohio can see rain or even a bit of sleet. Moisture totals are minor, with most areas seeing liquid equivalent of a few hundredths to a few tenths. With snow, there may be a dusting on insulated surfaces.
Much colder air in for Friday and the start of the weekend, although temps will moderate some Saturday. We see Sunday gain a couple more degrees, but a fast moving disturbance rips across northern Ohio, bringing the potential for minor hit and miss showers in north central and northeast Ohio, and clouds over most areas from US 30 northward.
Overnight Sunday night into Monday another cold front sags through the state. This brings our next leg down of temps to Ohio. WE will be well below normal and next Tuesday we may struggle to see temps move much out of the mid 20s. The front overnight Sunday also can trigger some light snows, but they will be very scattered. Moisture right now does not look to be the main feature with the frontal passage…but rather the brutal cold air. Temps stay well below normal for most of the rest of next week.
Lake effect snows pop up Wednesday, then we see scattered snow showers statewide for Friday to finish the 10 day period. Those snow showers can bring a coating to an inch to 90% of Ohio.
The extended period is drier. We are pulling our system forward into the 18th with less moisture potential. Rain totals can be from a few hundredths to half an inch, coverage at 70% of the state. Then we are dry the rest of the extended period.
So, while we made a few tweaks, the forecast is a little drier this morning, but much colder.
