Storm Team 27: Winter Storm overnight

Youngstown, Ohio weather forecast winter fog

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN)-

WHAT WE’RE TRACKING
We are going to continue to warm up today into Saturday but not in time for a new storm system to move through the Valley. Winter Storm Advisories and Warnings are now in place for all of the Valley. We are tracking mainly snow in Trumbull in Mercer counties. Through Saturday some areas could see up to 1-3 inches of snow on average in the northern portions of our viewing area and an isolated 3-5 inches. Then for both Valleys into the southern counties we are tracking the possibility of ice developing overnight. Some areas could see .10 of an inch of ice on average with and isolated .25 inches of ice. This is enough to knock down power lines, down trees, and make roads impassible in some locations. This is a fluid situation so stick with WKBN as this situation unfolds.

Good news after this weekend we are looking into better weather for the beginning of the week. Partly sunny skies and temperatures in the 30s.
