A large, slow moving storm system is now centered over western New York state. This system will gradually move eastward today. A cold front trailing westward from this system will move southward across Ohio today. This front, combined with moisture wrapping around the back side of the departing storm, will produce snow across the region today.
Temperatures will be near or slightly above freezing today which should limit accumulations to a coating to perhaps around an inch. Some of the higher spots could see a little more than that.
Snow showers will continue tonight with light accumulations possible. Lows tonight will dip into the mid 20s.
On Friday, a moist northerly flow will persist with scattered snow showers possible. Highs will reach the low 30s.
High pressure will finally build across the region over the upcoming weekend. Scattered snow showers are still possible through Saturday morning, especially across the snow belt. Then improving weather is expected Saturday afternoon with most locations seeing some sunshine. It will be cold with highs in the upper 20s.
Sunday will be partly sunny and dry with highs again in the upper 20s.
