Mother Nature targets the Valley once again

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Mother Nature is targeting the Valley once again with several inches of snow expected late Monday into Tuesday morning.

Snow will develop Monday night and is expected to dump three to six inches of new snowfall on the area, mainly between 11 p.m. Monday to about 3 a.m. Tuesday.

WKBN 27 First News This Morning will begin 30 minutes early at 4:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

Road crews are already preparing for the snow by treating roadways ahead of the storm. Large amounts of snow this winter have sent Ohio’s Department of Transportation scrambling for more salt to treat roadways.

There is a slight chance that a push of warm air from the south could cause some areas south of Youngstown to get a brief period of a wintry mix.

Temperatures will remain in the upper 20s for daily highs both Monday and Tuesday.


A flood threat still exists, though weather models show a decreased amount of rainfall than originally expected through Thursday and Friday. Rain combined with melting snow and ice on the rivers could cause ice jams.

Stay ahead of the storm.  Click here for interactive radar.
