Winter storm watch issued for OH from Friday afternoon through Saturday morning

Weather: High near 56 today but cold weather lurking

A trough of low pressure from the Northwest will settle over the valley Monday, bringing a storm system that will drop inches of rain and snow, said Cory Mueller, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. Temperatures will plummet into the single digits and teens late tonight which may cause a flash freeze on area roadways. In addition, rapidly falling temperatures will create icy conditions as the initial wintry mix of precipitation freezes to surfaces including walkways and roads. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS. A Winter Storm Watch for blizzard conditions means there is a potential for falling and/or blowing snow with strong winds and extremely poor visibilities. Snowfall of 4 to 6 inches and ice accumulations of up to a tenth of an inch are possible. By 4pm, the average area temperature will be 4 degrees, but the wind chill could drop to -20 with northwest winds gusting to 31 miles per hour. Less than a tenth of an inch of rain is likely. The strongest winds will be found from west central to south central Minnesota where winds could gust to 40 miles per hour.

Temperatures are expected to warm Thursday, with rain showers moving in and leading to heavier rain and temperatures near 50 degrees on Friday. Blowing and drifting is possible on Marias Pass.
