MONDAY 7 AM Update:

Light snow developed overnight and continues this early morning. Some area roads already reporting slick conditions. Expect the snow to pick up a bit after 9 AM. The snow will take a while to pass through the area, moderate snowfall rates are possible at times today. But mostly a long duration light snow event with 1-3" of accumulations. Snow will begin to diminish around 6 PM this evening. Then a few flakes/flurries possible before midnight. Dry and cold tomorrow with highs holding in the middle teens. Drive safe today.

SUNDAY 6:15 PM Update:

There are no changes in the forecast, with timing and snowfall totals. We are still getting 1-3 inches of snowfall across the whole coverage area, with about 2 inches in Toledo. The best shot to see 3 inches of snow is in Williams and Hillsdale Counties.

Timing:
1-4 a.m.:
Snow just entering the region. It's still all west of I-75.

4-6 a.m.: Snow is just west of I-75.

6-11a.m.: Snow now light but widespread across the entire area.

11a.m. - 2:00 p.m.: Snow begins to intensify during the lunch rush, going from Defiance to the Toledo area.

2-6 p.m.: A few breaks in the snow, but we're not totally done yet...

6-8 p.m.: One last thin ribbon of light snow comes through.

Sunday 8:30 AM Update:

After a relatively nice but cold day for your Sunday, snow arrives on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Clipper system moving out of Canada, currently bringing snow to the upper Midwest this morning will track toward Chicago through the day today. These types of low pressure systems don't bring a lot moisture with them. But still expect some moderate snow at times on Monday with 1-3" of snow accumulations, before diminishing late in the evening. Areas west of 75 will have the averages closer to 3".

Snow develops after 1 AM for western counties. I-75 around 6 AM. Snow will be enough to reduce visibilities and cover untreated roads. Plan extra time for travel tomorrow.

Confidence is high that northwest Ohio and southern Michigan will get a fresh coating of snow on Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Confidence is also high that most of the area will see 1-3".

The snow will begin early Monday morning along the Indiana/Ohio border. As of late Saturday night, the storm is still well over 1,000 miles west of Toledo.

Unlike Friday's more impactful and inconvenient wintry mix of ice, sleet, and snow, this will be a steady, longer lived snow - and snow alone.

Toledo and the I-75 corridor gets snow around 6:00 a.m. That should continue steadily but not continuously through mid afternoon Monday.

Expect bridges and overpasses to be slick.
