Winter Storm Warning for Tuesday
A small part of Central Ohio has been upgraded to a Winter Storm Warning for the storm that's approaching our area tonight:
This small sliver of counties actually isn't where the heaviest of the snow may fall, however this is where our snowfall will get close to Warning criteria. Basically points south of I-70 have to reach 4" to qualify for a Warning, while points north of I-70 have to get 6".
As this storm gets closer, it really feels like this will be one of the easiest winter storms to forecast in a while. We don't have the potential for warm air interacting, the track has stayed solid for days, and this won't be a blockbuster storm. It's a relatively easy one for us to predict. So without delay:
Snow forecast for Central Ohio
Some places to our northwest very well may get closer to 6" in some locations, depending on where the heaviest band of snow passes through. That heavy band is the only real question remaining with this storm. Models have suggested for a couple days now that an area of moderate to heavy snow will set up just north of the center of the low pressure. That area will probably get 1-3" more than the rest of Central Ohio. It looks like the center should pass right through the middle of Ohio, but if that tracks just a little further south, we could get more than predicted.
I'm going with 3" of snow here in South Bloomfield, which would tie us for the largest snowfall of the season, which happened back on December 16th.
