***CONFIDENCE REMAINS LOW ON TOTALS***
After hashing out models, and taking a look at all possible scenarios with this complex system, we have come to an agreement on a snowfall outlook as of right now. We still have doubt in how the actual totals will pan out. We have confidence in snowfall occurring, just not very confident in totals right now.
Taking a look at the map, we have the highest totals expected to be in Southeast Ohio into West Virginia, where 3 to 6 inches of snow is possible. The classic “warm wedge” (Mixed precipitation, too) will limit totals closer to Charleston, WV, but lighter totals of 1 to 4 inches are still possible. As you work towards the rest of Ohio and Indiana, we also feel 1 to 4 inches of snow is possible. The further northwest you go, less than 1 inch is expected.
We are striving to be as accurate as possible given the fact this system has not even reached land yet. As we mentioned earlier, it is entirely possible some of you see some now, and some of you see little or no snow at all. All options are possible with this system. Also, now that we are into March, the sun angle and time of day will play a role in final totals. Snow ratios will need to be watched as well.
A lot to keep an eye on over the next 24 hours, but we will be here watching models and keeping you informed of what we are seeing!
