Wednesday (12/28) Morning Weather Briefing

GOOD MORNING…..

Off to a cloudy and quiet start across the Valley this morning. BUT, there is clearing to our southwest and I expect that clearing to get in here as we get into the midday and afternoon hours.

Highs today will be a few degrees above average.

A cold front will approach late tonight and it will bring some precipitation with it. The question is: what kind? This can be just wet snow for some and for many, a mix of rain and snow. If it stays mostly or all snow in your location, you may see a fresh inch by daybreak Thursday.

Much of the rest of Thursday will be fairly uneventful with flurries around. Lake-effect snow will set up and get more organized by Thursday night and Friday. A windy, cold day Friday. Wind chills no better than the lower teens:

Snow will accumulate most efficiently in the primary snowbelts of OH, PA and NY. In our viewing area, northern Trumbull and a large chunk of Mercer County have the best chance of seeing enough snow to shovel and plow. NWS snow forecast (numbers probably too high south of I-80 in my opinion):

HOLIDAY WEEKEND

The cold will ease quickly for Saturday and temperatures will get back into the mid 30s. There is a chance for light mixed precipitation late in the day but I don’t think it will be impactful.

Temperature at midnight: around 30.

New Year’s Day will be pretty quiet; a small chance for rain late in the day.

LONG RANGE

A blob of cold air will cover much of the country late next week into next weekend. Looks like January.
