Snow will begin to push into the area just after 3 AM, impacting Stark, Putnam, and Northern Knox counties first. By your morning commute (8 AM) the entire viewing area will be seeing snow showers. Snow will linger through much of the day before clearing out around 4-5 PM.
Our area will be seeing 1-3 inches of accumulating snowfall. The highest accumulations will take place north of Interstate 74. Grassy and elevated surfaces will hold the highest accumulations.
The National Weather Service has placed most of our viewing area under a Winter Weather Advisory from midnight through Monday afternoon. Expect slippery road conditions during the morning commute. Northerly winds will be gusting up to 30 miles per hour which could create visibility issues due to blowing/drifting snow. Use caution!
Arctic air will take over on Tuesday dropping our temperatures near 20 degrees for the daytime high. Overnight temperatures will fall into the single digits.
Wind chills will also be a factor through Wednesday. Expect the wind chill, or “feels like” temperature to fall into the low teens and even below zero on Tuesday morning.
