Low pressure will move across the region today. This system will produce snow across northeastern Ohio, however the lack of significant moisture should limit accumulations to 2 inches or less at most locations.
High pressure will briefly build across the area late tonight through Monday morning. Another, stronger system will approach from the west Monday afternoon. Snow will develop from west to east, continuing through Monday night as the system moves across the area. There could be a period of heavy snow Monday night as an area of strong lift and deep moisture crosses the region.
The storm will quickly move to the east of the area on Tuesday, and the snow will come to an end. Most locations will see some sunshine during the afternoon.
