❄ Models continue to be consistent on a modest early season snowfall...
Low pressure moving out of "Dixie" will combine with northern branch energy to produce a storm Monday into Tuesday. Warm air in place will gradually take over changing the rain to snow for northern and eastern portions of the Ohio Valley.

All precipitation will start as rain, but as Monday morning progresses, colder air will push in gradually changing the rain to snow. Due to recent warmth most snow will melt through mid to late afternoon; However, as the sun sets, super-cooled objects and grassy areas will see a bit of accumulation.

Due to recent warmth and time of year most trafficked areas will see little snow, but rural roads and sheltered areas could get a covering. By Tuesday morning, most areas will range from 2 to 4 inches with higher amounts possible. Lake Effect Enhancement will occur in favored areas. Locations off of Lake Erie could approach a foot of fresh snow. This is not a bad way to start for snow lovers in the region.
