SuperBowl Sunday Snow Storm

All signs point to Sunday being the largest snow event of the season.
 
Travel will be difficult at best on Sunday for many football fanatics planning to hit the roads. You will KNOW by early afternoon whether you’re going to want to venture out in this one for the big game.

Winter Weather Watch in effect until Sunday evening for all NW Ohio/SE Michigan

 Snow begins late Saturday (10-11pm), picking up in intensity towards daybreak Sunday. 
Sunday will be an all day snow. Yes, this means snow before & during the Super Bowl game. Steady, moderate to heavy snowfall will be likely through the late morning, afternoon and early evening hours Sunday, eventually building accumulations of 6-10”.

Heavy Snow on Sunday
 
To put this into perspective, our largest snowfall this season was 2.8” on the 12th of January.
A far cry from 6”+! 

Blowing and drifting snow will be an issue through the late hours Sunday, creating larger drifts and making travel especially difficult after the majority of the accumulation has fallen.

Winds range between 10-20mph with temperatures in the low 20s.
