2/2 Forecast Update: A Snowy Saturday

TODAY AND TONIGHT: Snow will be widespread for a good portion of today and tonight. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect areawide until 7 AM tomorrow morning. Look for highs today around 25, with lows near 17 tonight I am having trouble believing a 12 degree or more temperature delta, even starting in the upper teens. The big question is, “How much snow?” These clippers can and have overachieved in the past. I don’t know that this one WILL, but I definitely cannot rule out that it WON’T. I am going with 2-4″, but most will see only as much as 3″. IF it somehow overachieves and does 3-5″, we are in Winter Storm Warning criteria at that point in most of the Cincinnati area. Please be careful on streets…even though many may have been pre-treated, some will still be slick today!

TOMORROW: The models have energy still around tomorrow — so a snow chance will be left in. By tomorrow evening, I would not be surprised if somebody has 5″. (CAUTION: That is NOT an official call — again, I am going with 2-4″.) Temperatures are now up in the air. I don’t think we will rise far…I’m going with 28. Lows Sunday night fall off to the middle or even lower teens again.

MONDAY: I thought yesterday I was seeing a trend toward drier skies Monday. But, there looks to remain a chance of precipitation with another disturbance/clipper. I should’ve left the chances in yesterday and am now re-applying them today. This should not be a lot — the disturbance won’t be particularly strong. I am keeping temperatures down. Why? Fresh snow cover. Going with 30 for a high. That’s a best case.

TUESDAY: I am going to introduce a chance of some snow on Tuesday as well. We will have highs in the lower 30’s at best with lows in the upper teens to low 20’s.

WEDNESDAY-FRIDAY: I’m going to slowly raise temperatures, starting with highs in the lower 30’s on Wednesday. By Friday lows will be in the middle 20’s and highs reach the upper 30’s.

NEXT UPDATE: Expect another post for sure tomorrow morning. This situation still could change — so I’ll leave the door open for updates later today. Until then, take care!
