Rain is on the way, right on schedule. Here’s what the radar looked like at 9:15am:
A wet and cold afternoon. No longer all that concerned about sleet/wet snow mixing in. A few pellets possible but no big deal. Hourly rain chances:
Rain totals around 1/2 inch today.
Behind this system, a nicer day tomorrow with some breaks of sunshine for the afternoon.
ARCTIC PLUNGE #1
The coldest air of the season so far is still on track for late this week. Record cold? Unusual for December? No and no. But it will be windy and cold, yes.
Wind chills Friday morning:
Snow showers will be most prevelant Thursday night and Friday and of couse will be mainly aimed at the primary snowbelt. Still think it’s possible that there are modest accumulations in northern Trumbull and Mercer. Stay tuned.
By the start of the weekend, the lake-effect will be winding down and we should see some intervals of sunshine for the YSU game Saturday afternoon. Still cold though! Highs near 30.
Sunday could be complicated. Possibly Monday too. Very low confidence in the forecast at the moment but precipitation in some form(s) seems likely. Mostly rain? Mostly snow? Not sure yet. Again, stay tuned.
ARCTIC PLUNGE #2
An even colder air mass seems likely to visit during the 2nd half of nbext week. Gonna be a busy December!
