Brian IveyOhio, Weather NewsLeave a Comment

Some good news for those who don’t prefer cold temperatures; Ohio is expected to see a weak warming trend over the next 36 hours. However, still dress very warmly with these slightly warmer conditions, because Wednesday is looking to be rather windy. These gustier conditions are expected to be seen from the central to northern Ohio following along the leading edge of the New England Nor’Easter system.


Though the trend is very weak, it is apparent that conditions throughout the day on Wednesday will be slightly warmer than they were today. Thursday also sees and increase to these temperatures. Night time temperatures will still be very cold, especially overnight into Wednesday morning.

SNOW (for N/NE Ohio)

With the strong Nor’Easter that is sitting over the Northeast continental U.S., moisture and precipitation are being transferred along the top edge of the system. Because of this, portions of North/Northeast Ohio may receive more snow overnight. Lake effect snow will also impact the same region, making travel difficult.

As the system moves away from land and into the Atlantic throughout the next day or two, the chances of snow will halt by Wednesday evening. Also associated with this system is the windy conditions mentioned before that will affect the Northern half of Ohio throughout the day tomorrow. Use caution when travelling in low visibility and slick conditions, especially when travelling at night.

After the dry conditions experienced after the Nor’Easter leaves the region, a weak warm front will move into the area. This front expected to pass at the end of this week/into the early weekend. This warm front will bring the possibility of mixed winter precipitation. Keep an eye out for the chances of frozen rain and take caution when necessary if this falls in your area. Expect cool but mild conditions after this chance of freezing rain passes.
