As has been well predicted all week, an equal opportunity snow will fall across the region beginning on Saturday morning. Isentropic ascent (warmer air aloft) will cause a period of light snow to break out Saturday before 9 or 10 a.m. Light snow will fall most of the day until the center of low pressure gets closer to the area Saturday night.
The 1002 mb low over Eastern Ohio will transfer energy to a new coastal low by early Sunday morning. Expect temperatures to remain in the low 20s throughout the snow so using a 12-15 to 1" ratio we'd expect 5-9" by morning for most areas. This will fall over an extended period of time so it shouldn't cause too many problems.
