Big snow on the way?
Another frigid start to the day with wind chills between -5 to -10 all morning. A mix of sun and clouds today and warming into the upper teens. Winds lighten up as well today and tonight. More clouds tonight and then cloudy with light snow showers for Wednesday. Snow accumulations by Wednesday evening will be around an inch for Central Ohio. North of I -70 may see a little less and South of I-70 may see a little more.
We dry out for Thursday, but will be watching the potential for a significant snow storm for Friday into Saturday.
Want a breakdown? Let's get a little nerdy...
Again, these models keep coming out all day long every 6 hours, so more and more information will be coming in and once the Low drops on this side of the Rockies we will get a much more accurate look at the track of the storm. So please check back in and take these maps with a grain of salt. They are not the final forecast and shouldn't be treated that way. I just wanted to give you a heads up and a nerdy look into the storm.
Also to note... the first couple "winter storms" of the season tend to shift more North than what the models show. BUT that is normally in November and December. We have cooled down a lot and we will have to see if the models are grasping this one properly with our colder air, or if they will shift that band of snow more North. So stay tuned. I will have more to come in the days ahead. Have a good one!

Sorry if there are typos... trying to crank this out before going home to take care of a sick wife and baby.
