Wild weather ride expected for next 7 days

Arctic air returns for the weekend

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – BE ALERT FOR ICY PATCHES:  Mainly on side-streets and walkways and parking lots.

TODAY: It will be mostly cloudy with patchy morning fog and seasonal temperatures in the lower 30s.

TOMORROW:  It will be mainly cloudy with a chance of rain. Mid-morning, we have a small risk for freezing drizzle. Temperatures warm into the low- to mid-40s. Last time we were that warm was December 23.

MID-WEEK WARM-UP & SOAKING RAIN FRIDAY

While we won’t have much sunshine, the warmer temperatures can give you time to do the following:

  • Take down decorations
  • Rinse the car off
  • Prep for a return to cold and snow. Stock up on rock salt!

ACCUMULATING SNOW  SATURDAY – While the exact track of the storm is uncertain, snow is likely Saturday, with accumulation possible. Lake effect snow showers are probable for Sunday, as arctic air spills back into the Valley.
