A huge winter storm will strike the Ohio Valley Saturday and Sunday this weekend. Snowfall totals will be significant and the wind will be a factor as well on Sunday. Have there been any talks about airport closures Sunday morning? Local news called for the possibility of thundersnow on Sunday morning as well as significant blowing and drifting of snow with winds gusting to 40mph.

IND will get hit hard. What about CLE? Has anyone heard the forecast for the Cleveland area? Fortunately this storm is hitting overnight during the weekend so the impact on FX should be minimal.

Local weather just said a foot of snow for the city for this storm. If there isn't a brief period of snow & sleet the total could be higher.

Yea...........and I've seen the weather reports talk about feet of snow only to turn into light snow flurries. Looking at the radar loop I don't see it happening. I don't know where all that moisture will come from

The Gulf. The connection isn't backfeeding far enough into the system as it sits now, as it moves east the southerly flow from the Gulf will be moisture-laden.

Here in CT we are going to be pounded with snow, sleet, and freezing rain. It isn't looking good for Saturday into Sunday. BOS,JFK,PVD, and BDL I have a feeling will have many cancellations. Especially for all the snow.

Even if CLE and CVG are hit much harder than the Northeast, if flying CO or DL, still a lot better to go via CLE or CVG than EWR or LGA. I expect the ground-stops into the New York airports to exceed 2 hours.

I hope I-65 won't be too bad, as I'm driving up to Indianapolis from Louisville at about 10AM this morning; my plans may have to change, as I'm going up to watch my school's basketball team play (Louisville Cardinals vs. Purdue). Down here at SDF, it started sleeting at around 6:30, and its currently a mix of a cold rain and sleet. The last few UPS departures and first wave of airline departures were impacted and not a single plane has taken off or landed since 6:59AM (as of 8:31AM); actually, a UPS 744 from ANC landed at 7:59, but that's been it so far.
Looks like IND, ORD, CLE, and DTW will be highly impacted (especially IND and ORD). NYC, PHL, and BOS, as well as places such as BUF and SYR (and all of the regional airports in north PA and upstate NY) tomorrow and Monday.
Cincinnati (CVG) may be impacted somewhat, but it doesn't look like Louisville will get much more than rain after this morning and we'll probably only get 1 or 2 inches of snow tonight here at SDF.

I don't see that happening either. The only snow in that whole area is lake effect snow... and that is not even making it east of the NY-VT boarders... and staying well north of CT

Latest report is that the bulk of the storm will go north around CT, RI, and MA

Instead of the forecasted foot+, its going to be half that in snow, rain/freezing rain.

Booooring

"Sunday

Nor'eastah! Morning snow goes to rain along the coast and sleet, freezing rain farther inland. 2-4" of snow along the coast before the changeover and 4-8" outside of I-495. The rain & freezing rain tapers to drizzle by afternoon. This storm is a wetter storm for all as well as a windier storm. Highs from 31 inland to 41 south shore/Cape. SE 15-20 mph."

You definitely had old data in your cache buddy. There has been heavy precip through the Ohio Valley all morning/afternoon.

That's what happens when a dry system taps the Gulf moisture....same story in the summer when you see a line of storms blow up out of nowhere!

I'm in PIT on a layover. I got in about 2:45pm EST and the snow arrived earlier than expected. At this point they've upped the estimated snowfall totals to 4-6" mixing with ice from now till Sunday evening. Lets see if I make it to SMF tomorrow. I leave here at 9:00am tomorrow!

The forecasters in DC started predicting a major winter storm on Monday morning. They later predicted snow, sleet, and the dreaded "wintry mix". The forecast seemed to change every few hours. Today the winter weather watch was changed to a winter weather advisory, and this evening that was changed to a high wind watch.

For DCA it doesn't seem that there will be any wintry precipitation to foul things up, but the predicted 40+ mph. winds could cause havoc. There could be heavy rains at times also. Don't know about IAD and BWI.

The good news, at least for here, is that the weather should move out tomorrow afternoon.

The forecast through monday morninng in greater CLE is calling for upwards of perhaps a foot of snow, with some freezing rain mixed in for your traveling pleasure. By Sunday afternoon, we could have blizzard-like conditions. If you're traveling through CLE tomrrow evening, you could end up there for the night.

ORD is up to 3 hours and 26 minute arrival delays.

It's going to suck in CLE tomorrow, that is for sure.
