Saturday into Sunday. At this time, six inches or more of snow
accumulation look likely along and east of a line from Upper Sandusky
to Lorain. Strong winds gusting to between 30 and 40 mph are also

Sunday night into Monday. Impacts to travel are likely over the
weekend. Stay tuned for updates on this developing system.

An Arctic blast with dangerous wind chills will move into the area
Sunday through early next week. Potential wind chills could drop to
