The big question heading toward the weekend remains whether or not we will be impacted by the potential for snow and maybe rain, according to Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Brett Collar.

Over the last week, we've been paying close attention to the models and how they've been evolving this system. This past weekend, models were painting a more "rainy" picture for us on Saturday.


But over the last few days the track of this system has been pushing further south. At one point it looked like we would see heavy snow as a result of this system’s track. However, over the last 24 to 48 hours, the track continues to push further south and now some may not see any snow or rain at all.

“Two of the long range models that we look at, the GFS and European models, have both come to a decent agreement that the bulk of the snow will stay to our south Saturday,” Collar said. “Areas south of I-70 may get clipped with a little light snow early in the afternoon, but accumulation is not looking likely.”


This forecast remains fluid and changing hour-by-hour and day by day. As we approach the weekend, the best thing that you can do is stay tuned to the latest forecast using the WHIO weather app.
