Summit County to see light snow over the weekend

After a week of mostly dry weather, Summit County is expected to see a few snowflakes this weekend.

According to National Weather Service meteorologist Evan Direnzo, 1-3 inches of snow is expected to fall over the weekend in town, and higher elevations could see as many as 6 inches.

Snowfall is expected to start Thursday evening and persist through Saturday, with light snowfall on and off through Sunday, Direnzo said. He added that the storm should clear up either late Sunday night or early Monday morning.

“(The) strongest winds are forecast for Saturday afternoon into the evening with the strongest gusts probably up to about 40 mph in the higher elevations,” Direnzo said. “So if you have any snow falling or any snow on the ground, that would cause patchy blowing snow in those areas.”

The National Weather Service forecasts declining temperatures over the weekend with a highs of 37 degrees Friday, 34 on Saturday and 29 on Sunday. Full Article
