Hope you enjoyed the weekend. This week and the upcoming weekend will be quite a bit different!
One more mild February day today before the cold settles in. Temperatures can spike into the middle and perhaps even upper 40s by midday today but rain will arrive around lunch time as well…..especially in our Ohio counties. The precipitation will not spread east all that quickly.
While we can’t rule out some wet snowflakes trying to mix in this afternoon, this will mainly be rain. The chance for some wet snow will increase after sunset as temperatures cool.
TONIGHT/TUESDAY SNOW SHOWERS
The air mass will cool enough that any precipitation that falls will be frozen tonight and Tuesday. Snow showers will visit on a few occasions. There is a chance for a somewhat steadier period of snow south of Rt 30 late tonight….close call there.
Snow accumulations tonight and Tuesday can average a coating to an inch or two. Might be a little more than 2″ in southern Columbiana County if that steadier snow gets going.
WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY: COLDER, MORE SNOW SHOWERS
The air will continue to get colder as we go through midweek. Snow showers will continue, with the most frequent snow in the snow belt. Snow accumulations will remain possible but will generally be on the modest side.
NWS snow forecast through Wednesday evening shows the possibility of a handful of inches in total, especially in the northern viewing area.
HARSH COLD FOR THE WEEKEND
The coldest air of winter will arrive for Valentine’s Day weekend. Expecting temperatures to stay in the single digits or lower teens Saturday with wind chills below zero. Air temperatures could drop as low as 0 to -10 Saturday night.
