DETAILED FORECAST DISCUSSION – Meteorologist Beth McLeod
We are cold! Snuggle Alert for sure tonight! Overnight most temps will drop into the teens and the wind chills possible around 10! Cold and cloudy tomorrow. Lake effect snow showers have ended for now, but clouds and flurries could brush by us tomorrow.
The bigger event for wintry mess comes Monday evening.
Next up, a ‘Panhandle’ system early next week is still leaving question marks in terms of the exact track and the type of precipitation that could impact NE Ohio.
Here’s the current thinking…
Monday: Icy mix/snow north vs rain south starting after 3PM. Less than 0.10″ of ice, Around an inch of a slushy snow.
Monday Night: Accumulating snow. A slushy 1-3″ possible.
Tuesday: Snow showers. Additional accumulations.
Here’s the latest Fox 8 Day Forecast:
