The persistent lake effect snow showers that were with us for much of the weekend have finally tapered off leaving only flurries across the area this morning. The flurries will linger across the eastern areas through early this afternoon, then they should end completely. Much of the area will see some sunshine today, but it will still be chilly with highs around 30 degrees.
A storm system over the northern Plains today will track into the Ohio Valley on Tuesday. Clouds will increase across the area tonight with lows falling to the upper teens.
Moisture will quickly overspread the area from the west on Tuesday with a mix of rain and snow developing during the afternoon. Temperatures will rise to the mid 30s around mid day, then fall slowly during the afternoon as the precipitation overspreads the area.
Any mix of rain and snow will change to all snow late in the day.
The storm will track across southern Ohio Tuesday night and into the Mid Atlantic states on Wednesday. Snow is likely across most of the area Tuesday night. The snow could be heavy at times, especially across the southern and central counties. Accumulations are likely. Lows will be in the 20s.
As the storm moves to our east, moisture will exit with it and the snow will taper off Wednesday morning. Some snow showers or flurries will likely persist through the afternoon. Highs on Wednesday will reach the mid to upper 30s.
High pressure will build across the region for Thursday and Friday bringing fair weather and moderating temperatures.
