Snow bands in IL into IL and NW OH. Rain bands through KY into WV. We
have spotty light precip between the two and the models have them
colliding between 6-8PM with rain/snow line
right over the metro. Should be all snow by 10PM-12AM for the metro
then the rain light slowly retreats to SE Ohio.
This is the RPM model and it was MONEY last winter. I wanted to attached it so that way we can check it later to verify it.
I am calling for 2-4" by daybreak along the I-70 corridor (thirty minute
drive east or west of it) then another inch by midday. (Drastically
lower totals for far SE Ohio) If I see any alterations in the forecast, it would be to nudge the heavier snowbands a tad more to the East. That will be more of a now-cast this evening when the precip arrives and we check the ground temperatures, but for now the image above is what I am going with for the newscasts.
Either way, it will be a mess on the roads for many Monday morning. The first snow always is a mess. Stay safe and have a good one!
