Heads up! Snow is making its way back into the forecast

Want to get those holiday lighting displays set up this weekend? Or do you have to run out to the store for some canned yams to complete the ultimate Thanksgiving feast? Well, you may have to dodge some rain drops and even a few snowflakes to get those jobs done.

A storm system will slide north into Southern Ohio and higher Saturday afternoon and evening. The system will bring scattered rain showers to the area beginning mid to late afternoon Saturday.

As colder air slides in Saturday night, the scattered rain will change over to scattered snow.

This is a fast-moving storm. That means it will only last for about 12 hours, starting with rain between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday evening and ending with light snow between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m. Sunday morning.

With temperatures hovering in the lower 30s Saturday night, some of the snow will stick, especially on grassy surfaces and patio furniture.

Expect anywhere from a generous dusting to, perhaps, as much as 2 inches of snow to accumulate by sunrise Sunday morning.

If you need dry weather for yard clean-up or holiday decorating outside, your best weekend hours are Saturday morning, early afternoon Saturday and all day Sunday. With high temperatures in the 40s both days, a warm coat and a hat are recommended.

The same goes for the Browns Game on Sunday—expect cool sunshine all day with temperatures in the lower and middle 40s.

Have a great weekend!
