Blustery today... Big snow on the way?!

The models are still showing at least another inch of snow for us through the rest of today, but, as we have already seen so far today... it will just blow everywhere.  The winds will start to subside later today and the snow will taper off this evening.  This weekend highs will be in the mid-upper 30's and more sunshine.  So quite an improvement over today.  Any traveling today would need to be done with caution.  The bridges and even some of the surface pavement have reached the freezing mark and there were a TON of accidents today.  Several of the Columbus highways were shutdown due to accidents and crashes.

Next week is still a little questionable.  Later Christmas Eve into Christmas Day, Monday into Tuesday, we will see a weak system bringing us light precip.  The models are still making up their mind on the temps, but right now we are on the line between rain, wintry mix, and snow.  Regardless of the outcome, it will be a light situation... THEN... I am not sure if you would consider what we are dealing with a "storm" with only 1-3" of snow and the winds, but if you don't consider this a "storm" then you may consider later next week a storm.  There will be a Low Pressure system starting out near Louisiana and moving up the Appalachians.  We will be on the west side of the storm and this could mean a plow-able amount of snow.  It could turn out to be quite interesting so if you love snow... you will want to stay tuned.  Even if you don't love snow... you will probably still be interested.  It all will depend on the track of the low.  A little more westward would mean a little more rain, but current track has us right in the sweet spot for a lot of snow.

I will be updating this over the weekend since I will be here working... so I will see ya again soon!  Travel safe today and have a good one!
