As I just said on my Facebook page:
This storm continues to be squirrely... but it still has not arrived yet... so we continue to adjust the forecast...
AND... as long as you stayed up-to-date with the changing system, first off... I thank you and I can assure you, you will stay ahead of this. It has been quite crazy the last few days, and I hope to shed some light into WHY it has been like that here:
HERE is the link to the ABC6 weather site with the latest winter weather warnings.
A wintry mix arrives for Central Ohio tonight. Warm air will work in Sunday and any snow accumulations for Central and Southern Ohio will be melted by rain showers. Rain showers will remain persistent through most of Central/Southern Ohio Sunday with the snow mainly staying in the Northern third of Ohio. The rain/snow line will stay from Bellefontaine to Marion to Mansfield most of Sunday with some freezing rain and sleet mixing in at times. Temperatures will sharply drop Sunday night so any remaining moisture will refreeze overnight with another quick round of snow.
Accumulations of 4"-8+" for the Northern third of Ohio. Just north of the metro will pick up a few inches, but rain will melt that some during Sunday. Columbus Metro will see between ½" and 2" of snow before the rain moves in Sunday and melts the majority of that. Southern Ohio will see little to no snow. The lingering snow showers Sunday night & early Monday may bring another ½"-1", but the main concern will be the refreeze for Monday morning. Another round of light snow possible on Wednesday.
This storm has been one squirrel of a storm... As much as you are annoyed by the changes in the track of the storm... I am right there with you. A lot still will depend on the temperatures tomorrow. If we stay a tad cooler(not looking very likely) then we COULD see the snow farther south... But most of the accumulating snow is looking to be for Northern Ohio with this one... If there are any more changes, I will be back on with an update. Have a good one!
