A low-pressure system will move south of the area before being caught in a trough and moved north towards east Ohio and western Pennsylvania. Above is a look at that trough. It will swoop down bringing cooler air to the Midwest and even parts of the South. That will contribute to precipitation changing over to snow Monday into Tuesday.
Timing out the rain and snow, the rain will move into the area late Sunday. At the same time, that trough will bring the cooler air from Canada into our area. As we head into Monday morning, the rain will begin to change over to some snow. A wintry mix is possible at first but by late morning/early afternoon Monday snow should really be the only thing falling. Snow will fall pretty much all day Monday and the first half of Tuesday. Some gusty winds are also possible throughout the duration of this weather event.
So, some key factors to be watched is where the low goes, although right now most models are pointing towards east Ohio and western Pennsylvania. Also, how fast we get to and drop below freezing Sunday into Monday and the intensity of the precipitation.
Right now, at least 1 inch of snow is possible. Most of us could see 2 to 7 inches of snow, with some seeing local higher amounts. Stay with GDwxpost for the latest.
