In terms of snow, this unfolding situation is setting up favorably for some very significant snowfall amounts during the next day or so in places like northeastern Ohio and this includes in and around the Cleveland metro region. The combination of strong winds crossing over Lake Erie and the slow-movement of the overall strong storm system will allow for snow to pile up in some localized spots with more than a foot possible in the northern part of Ohio. Snow accumulations are likely elsewhere over the next day or so including across West Virginia, western Pennsylvania and New York. Looking ahead, another storm system is likely to form later this week across the middle of the nation and it could impact the eastern states at week’s end, but there are still many questions that remain on its potential.
