Low pressure will move into the lower Ohio Valley area late

clouds will then continue to increase and thicken as low pressure
moves into the lower ohio valley by tuesday morning. kept just
chance pops going in the far west overnight...with the steady snow
probably holding off until after 6am tuesday.
.short term /tuesday through thursday night/...
deepening low pressure will move from the lower ohio valley
tuesday morning into northern ohio by tuesday evening. nam tracks
the low a little further to the west and north compared to the
gfs. this would lead to somewhat lighter snowfall as the better
dynamics would be further north and it would also pull in some
drier air. leaning more toward the gfs solution and issued a
winter storm watch for the entire area. at this time a general 6
to 10 inch snowfall seems reasonable with the heaviest snow more
likely over extreme northwest ohio compared to the weekend storm
that brought the heaviest snow to the sern portion of our forecast
area. both models were showing an intrusion of somewhat drier air
into the area tuesday evening...nam somewhat more so than the gfs.
this could lead to a tapering off of the snow before picking up
again later tuesday night and wednesday. the snow will likely
taper off fairly quickly wednesday afternoon and evening as the
low jumps to the east coast.
