I've lost county how many times we've mapped out snow totals, but here we go again. It's going to be a quick-hitting snow late Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning (before sunrise) - the leading edge of another Arctic Blast!
It will be cold enough for the snow to stick and cause slick roads Wednesday morning, with school delays or closings possible. Stay tuned!
Follow along with the maps below. Let's first time out the snow.
1st Map: Snow developing after sunset Tuesday night. Snow expected to be steadiest along the Ohio River, also just north and south of the I-64 corridor, with lesser amounts the farther north and south you go.
2nd Map: Snow drifts south of the river during the overnight into very early Wednesday morning.
3rd Map: Snow ends before sunrise Wednesday morning. Lows temps at this time in the single digits and teens. It will also be breezy, so wind chills could be subzero!
The last 3 maps are the snowfall total projections with the GFS, EURO , and RPM models The GFS and EURO show lighter amounts of 1" or less - and I like that. The RPM showing up to 2" totals. While that could be possible, I think 1" or less is the safe bet by early Wednesday.
Finally, the 7day forecast shows more cold weather to finish up February, and chilly into our first March weekend. We may even have another snow chance late Friday into early Saturday. Potentially no major weather pattern change through mid-March!
