Sunday snow done, frigid Christmas awaits

By  | 

TOLEDO, OH (13abc Action News) – SUNDAY 10:30 p.m. UPDATE

The snow is done with for tonight. Some of you have heard in other places (unclear where) that there is more snow coming all week. That is not true. Apart from a few northern lake effect snow bands Monday and maybe Tuesday, it's all quiet until at least Friday... too quiet. That calm weather means we'll be in the deep freeze, with extremely intense high pressure overhead. That mean - this time of the year - that we'll be very cold. Temperatures stay well below freezing for at least the next ten straight days.

Snow reports:
Graytown (rural Ottawa County): 5.75"
Milbury: 4.5"
Maumee: 4.0"
Perrysburg: 4.0
Toledo Airport: 3.0"
13abc: 3.6"
Byrne/Glendale: 4.5"
Ottawa: 3.0"
Napoleon: 4.0"

SUNDAY 10 AM UPDATE

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN PLACE FOR ALL COUNTIES TODAY

Steady snow expected between 1-9 PM today, leaving 3-5" of accumulations for most. Locally up to 6" is possible by Christmas morning. Toledo has not had a snow depth over 2" on Christmas morning since 2004, were there was 5". White Christmas wishes have been answered this year with the chance of 1" or more at 100%

As snow leaves, much colder temperatures arrive. Feel like temperatures Christmas morning will be just a couple degrees above zero.

SATURDAY 5:45p.m. Update:

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IS IN PLACE FOR ALMOST EVERY FROM SUNDAY AFTERNOON INTO MONDAY.

The White Whristmas many of you have been hunting for is about to arrive, no doubt about it.

Much of the area could get 3" or more, of snow late Sunday, Sunday night. That's on top of the melty stuff we had Saturday.

Snow will be ongoing for most of the afternoon, falling steadily and not in a quick burst. still, travel could be difficult just southeast of Toledo by dusk. Lows Christmas morning will be much colder, behind the snow.

We will not get above freezing through at least the start of 2018, and the snow will stay put. Lows Tuesday through Thursday will be near 0°, with more snow by Friday.
