(February 7, 2017) – Showers with isolated to scattered thunderstorms can be expected through mid afternoon as a cold front approaches from the west. There is a low risk of an isolated strong to severe thunderstorm this afternoon southeast of a Monticello to Goshen to Wauseon line, with wind gusts to 60 mph and hail up to quarter sized as the main threats. Some locally heavy rainfall is also possible this morning that may lead to some ponding of water on roadways. Otherwise, unseasonably mild conditions are in store for today in advance of the cold front with gusty south winds developing. Much colder conditions will filter into the area tonight and Wednesday. Another system will bring some light snow accumulations for Wednesday, mainly south of Route 6 where 1 to 2 inches of snow accumulation is expected Wednesday afternoon/evening. Lake effect snow showers will also develop Wednesday night, but accumulations will be minor.
