This will be a crisp weekend to be outdoors.
A Wind Chill Watch exists that will probably be upgraded to a warning later. But based upon what we've experienced so far this winter, this weekend's weather forecast is not horrible.
A little snow, a little breezy, and some cool temps. It's mid-February in northern Ohio. Winter.
Highlights from the NWS:
- another arctic blast will hit the area this weekend.
- temperatures will fall into the single digits by late Saturday afternoon, and then plunge to 5 to 10 degrees below zero by daybreak Sunday.
- 1 to 2 inches of snow Saturday.
- northwest winds will increase to 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 40 mph Saturday afternoon, which will cause significant blowing and drifting of snow.
