We are going to be keeping an eye on the next possible weather maker, which could impact the region next weekend. At this time, the long-range models are pointing to a winter storm pushing northeast toward the western and central Great Lakes. The odds are favoring the risk of snow in the region, but how long it lasts and how much falls is still very much to be determined in the days ahead. We’ll watch to see if a First Alert Weather Day may be necessary as new data rolls in the new week.

Snow could fall in the area next weekend. Stay tuned for updates.
