Some snow to close out the week

Posted: Updated:

Things are still on track for a few small snow events through late Saturday night.  It's a fairly active period with a big low centered over northern Michigan.  Until that breaks, we'll see little systems rotate through this area.  It's basically like a leaky faucet at this point.  If you're curious, Toledo Express got 3.2" from yesterday's snowfall.  That leaves us about three inches shy of the all-time monthly snowfall record in Toledo… and it's only the 17th.  That would best the old mark set in January 1978 (the famed blizzard year).


This afternoon, another little line of snow will move through the whole viewing area.  Just like this morning, the line will come in from the southwest, so we're watching Fort Wayne and Lima before it reaches Toledo and B.G.  This should be light, less than an inch easily in most spots.  Still, roads will become slick in many spots and we'll see pockets of lowered visibility. 
There will be a lull in the snow and clouds briefly.  The best chance for limited sun is early tomorrow morning.  Another clipper rotates in from Minnesota and arrives late in the afternoon or early in the evening.  All of our tools agree with each other, which is a rarity. Here's the problem: they each have a sharp cutoff in the SW corner of our area. 


Still, this storm isn't built like others we've become accustomed to. 

After that, the Arctic floodgates open up Monday.  We've changed very little in the forecasted temperatures next week; just know that it will be cold again!  Below-zero lows are a possibility Wednesday and Thursday morning.  We also put in a chance of late snow Thursday but it looks more like a Friday thing.
