National Weather Service Paints Early Winter Picture


Put in Bay weather

National Weather Service, Cleveland Office, depicts a wintry scenario in the weather discussion posted Friday evening.  A gale warning is in effect from 4am until 10pm on Saturday.  WNW winds are expected to top 30mph.

An interesting scenario sets up Monday night into
Tuesday as a coastal storm begins to form.  The 12Z models show an
inverted trough forming west of the Appalachians Monday night with
moisture streaming north into the eastern sections of the forecast
area.  Precipitation type may likely be snow with this event.
The models are trending colder with this event.
Strong cold air advection and wrap around moisture with this
system will keep snow showers over most of the forecast area. Lake
effect snow will likely develop Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night
with the potential for more accumulating snow over the traditional
snow belt areas.
