Here is an updated outlook for the snow which is expected across the Miami Valley late this weekend. A couple of inches of snow will be possible through Sunday evening. Yet another, potentially bigger storm could impact the region Tuesday.

Our Storm Center 7 team is monitoring a storm system that is expected to move from the Pacific northwest into the Ohio Valley by late Saturday, spreading snow across the region Saturday night.

Snow is expected to continue to fall into Sunday, although as warmer air attempts to push into the area, the snow may mix with or change to rain across the southern part of the region.

Chief Meteorologist Eric Elwell said the latest indications are that most will pick up around 1 to 2 inches of snow by late Sunday.

“We’ll have to pay attention to the track and the strength as it moves across the Plains on Friday,” Elwell said. “That will make a big difference if we need to change the snowfall forecast.”

Elwell said we may not be done with the snow Sunday, as another system is forecast to be a threat to the region by Tuesday of next week.

    By declaring this state of emergency, Scott's office said he is ensuring that state and local government has ample time, resources and flexibility to get prepared for this storm, WFTV reported.

    What is a subtropical storm?

    Scott said, “As we continue to monitor Subtropical Storm Alberto’s northward path toward Florida, it is critically important that all Florida counties have every available resource to keep families safe and prepare for the torrential rain and severe flooding this storm will bring. Today, I have declared a state of emergency in all 67 Florida counties to make sure that our state and local governments are able to coordinate with federal partners to get the resources they need. Yesterday, I directed the State Emergency Operations Center activate to Level 2 and I will continue to be in constant communication with state and local emergency management officials as this storm approaches Florida.

    “If any Florida family doesn’t have an emergency preparedness plan, now is the time to act. Remember, the track of these storms can change without notice. Do not think that only areas in the cone will be impacted – everyone in our state must be prepared. I encourage every Floridian to visit FloridaDisaster.org and get your plan before this storm hits so you can keep your family safe.
