Keep up with HollywoodLife.com and The Weather Channel for more details surrounding Winter Storm Hunter.

Around 3am on Thursday morning, the National Weather Service will invoke a Winter Storm Warning for the entire broadcast area.

The watch is in effect for Richland, Ashland, Crawford, Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Erie, Geauga, Lake, Mahoning, Medina, Portage, Summit, Stark, Trumbull and Wayne counties. Total ice accumulations of around one tenth will be possible with total snow accumulations of 1 to 4 inches expected. "Most of the area will receive 0.3" to 0.70" of rain on Friday. Rain will turn to a rain and snow mix overnight Thursday and into Friday before snow during the day on Friday.

As a result, National Weather Service meteorologists are also calling for a chance of sleet and freezing rain that morning, beginning at 6 a.m.

The weather service said the combination of melting snow and periods of rain will make rivers and streams rise, breaking up the ice but possibly causing ice jams to form. Temperatures will fall into the lower 30s and below freezing late Friday afternoon, with a transition from a wintry mix to snow. Those areas are also expected to have about 1/10 of an inch of ice accumulate.

Ice and snow accumulations for the eastern US could include as much as a foot of snow for western NY and New England. Everything will change to snow before ending early Saturday afternoon.


A winter storm originally projected to bypass to the west of Lincoln County now looks to deliver a glancing blow to the region beginning Thursday morning.

Ice expands to areas such as Hopkinsville, Clarksville, and Ashland City before 12 p.m.

Thomas said that next week will return to "winter time arctic cold", but noted that it won't be as cold as it was around New Years Day. The current forecast predicts wind speeds between 20 and 30 miles per hour with higher gusts from Alabama to Maine. Snow can be heavy at times and will last from the afternoon to late evening before exiting. However, strong winds will remain in place with very cold temperatures creating blowing and drifting snow along with dangerously cold wind chill values.

Mostly cloudy, with a high near 31. Light freezing rain possible to start, followed by snowfall of 3 to 5 inches with locally higher amounts possible.

Saturday Night: Any left over sleet and snow will end Saturday evening into Saturday Night.
