An early-spring snowstorm bringing at least two inches of snow is expected to hit Stark County late Sunday.
An early-spring storm is forecast to hit this area Sunday, delivering a significant snowfall.
“The best chance for snow will probably be Sunday night into Monday,” said Brian Mitchell, a hydrometeorological technician for the regional National Weather Service bureau. “It is kind of early to tell, but two to four (inches) is not out of the question. At least the bulk of the weekend will be dry.”
The storm is being created by a low-pressure system currently hovering over the Plain states, such as Colorado and Kansas.
As it enters the area Sunday, a good portion of Ohio will be affected. Northwest Ohio and the Toledo area will be least affected, according to Mitchell.
“The center of the storm should be well south of us,” Mitchell said. “There will still be some snow showers on Tuesday, some scattered stuff.”
State transportation workers, as to be expected, are bracing for the oncoming heaving snowfall.
“We are ready,” Justin Chesnic, public relations officer for the Ohio Department of Transportation, said. “We will have our crews out. In Stark County we will typically have 18 to 20 (plow trucks) out. We have got people (staff), we have got materials and everything else.”
