Lots of snow for Sunday!?!

I mentioned it in my blog two days ago... and it is looking more and more likely.  Spring Snow Storm!  I think parts of West Central Ohio could see upwards of 6" of snow.  The above images compare the GFS and NAM forecast models.  They are still keeping most of the snow to the south, like Cincinnati, but I am agreeing more with the slightly northerly track of the Euro... pictured below on the right.
Again, you can click on the images to enlarge them to see them in their full glory.  I think in the Dayton area they could see between 4-8".  For the Northern part of Ohio, Southern part of Ohio, and then a little further to the east of Dayton like Columbus and the rest of Central Ohio: an easy 3-6" are possible. Then lesser amounts for Eastern Ohio.  So how about the timing?
The models are all agreeing on the timing fairly well. (Euro is pushing it in a little later... just a little)  With the colder air punching in this should stay mostly snow for Ohio.  Maybe a little rain to the south.  The snow should Sunday morning for the Western Ohio and then start midday Sunday for Central Ohio and then let up overnight Sunday night as the dry slot arrives.  Then Monday we are looking at another light round of snow to add an inch or so to the top of it all.  Stay tuned to the forecast and I will be tweaking the forecast as needed over the coming days.  Have a good one!
