Today we embark on a 2-day, 876-mile trip from Western MA to central IN. There’s been a lot of talk about a storm system hitting the region, can we get the trip in before it stops us in our tracks?
It will be a fairly nice start to the day and mostly sunny skies greet us as we embark southward out of Springfield into CT then eventually heading west on I-84. Clouds will increase throughout the day as we trek through southeastern NY and into PA. There’s a slight chance a few flurries could linger in the air as we pass by State College and into western PA, but the system responsible for that will have mostly passed on to the north, leaving some overcast skies in its wake. Fairly quiet conditions are expected for the evening as we pull into Youngstown, OH for the night
An area of weak low pressure will be making its way through the OH Valley today. While the start of the day will just be cloudy, we can expected to see some light snow start to fall by the time we make it past Mansfield into the Columbus, OH area. While we may be happy to see THAT Columbus, we must trudge onwards on I-71 since we have a little ways to go yet. Luckily for us, snow showers will changeover to rain midday, making the rest of the drive wet, but not as treacherous as the start of the day was. Rain showers should start to taper off as we pass by Cincinnati and eventually into Columbus, IN!
