...WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FROM LATE FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH
SATURDAY EVENING...

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for north central Ohio, northeast
Ohio, northwest Ohio and northwest Pennsylvania.

.DAY ONE...This afternoon and tonight.

Light snowfall of around an inch, isolated two inches, is expected
this afternoon and evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

A strong low pressure system will move through the southern Ohio
Valley over the weekend bringing heavy snow to the area. Slight adjustments
to the storm track and amounts may still be possible which will have
an effect on where the heaviest snow will fall Saturday into Sunday.
At this time, widespread 6 to 12 inches snow accumulation look
likely. Twelve plus inches of snowfall will be possible across far
northeast Ohio into northwest Pennsylvania. Strong winds gusting to
between 30 and 40 mph are also expected and will contribute to areas
of blowing and drifting snow, especially near Lake Erie and open
areas. Periods of lake effect snow will follow Sunday afternoon
into Monday. Impacts to travel are likely over the weekend. Travel
may become almost impossible and extremely dangerous Saturday
afternoon through Sunday morning. 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
-10 to -25 degrees Sunday night into Monday morning.
