As the storm system moves east, a cold front will cross Ohio this weekend bringing the coldest air of the season so far by early next week. High temperatures in the Miami Valley may not make it out of the 30s by Monday with gusty winds making it feel even colder. What may be even more shocking is the possibility that snowflakes could fly for the first time this season in parts of our area.
While the details of the coming storm system will still have to be worked out over the coming days, almost all of the forecast models show some wrap-around moisture crossing the Great Lakes late Sunday into Monday. This moisture will likely combine with falling temperatures to produce some flurries or even snow showers. The heavier snow will likely be confined to the “snow belt” areas of Ohio and Indiana, however some snowflakes may make it into the area Sunday night or Monday. At this time, snow accumulation is unlikely simply due to the recent mild weather leading to warm ground/surface temperatures.
