Winter! Where has it been? Not here since very late November. December was the 2nd least snowy on record in Youngstown and it was the 14th warmest December on record here. Well, we are about to pay the price. Here’s a web video that has all the details. If you like a more technical weather discussion, check out “Weather For Weather Geeks”.

1) A Few Hours of Freezing Rain Saturday Morning. By early afternoon, we’ll be above freezing. A very soggy afternoon!

2) An “Alberta Clipper”-type System Will Bring Snow Tuesday. Initial snow estimate is 2-4 inches Tuesday. There can be additional accumulations Wednesday with lake-effect, especially north of I-80.
3) Harsh Wind and Cold Wednesday into Thursday.
