After a tease of sunshine and temperatures bumping against 50, March may be about to deliver some madness.
The U.S. Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for most of northern Ohio for Wednesday.
Depending on the exact track of a low pressure system through the Ohio Valley, Northeast Ohio is expected to finish a warm, sunny Tuesday with heavy rain, then 4 to 6 inches of snow through Wednesday and temperatures in the single digits by Thursday morning.
As the temperatures fall, the rain is expected to turn over to freezing rain, then all snow.
The heaviest accumulations of snow are expected to be in Northern Ohio.
Wednesday will be a brisk day with snow and winds gusting to 25 mph.
The area contained in the weather outlook extends from Lake Erie south to Holmes and Stark counties in the Akron-Canton area. Farther west, the advisory area extends as far south as Columbus.
